"Writing has always been my refuge to quiet the chaos going on around me"

Updated: Aug 12, 2019

Jennifer Steets has always been passionate about writing. After having trained with the US Womens Volleyball Team in Colorado Springs, CO, and working as a fashion model in Europe, NY, and Los Angeles, Jennifer decided to fulfill her dream to become a screenwriter. She took a ten week "Intro to playwriting" course with a Mark Taper Forum playwright, attended UCLA Extension courses, and several in home workshops with private teachers, all for writing. She has written a novel, a few short stories, and finally, her first feature screenplay.

And.. practice makes perfect! Earlier this year, Jennifer won Best First Time Screenwriter with Crickets, a beautiful drama about five happy sisters who share a week of life altering experiences while their parents vacation abroad.
