“I am beyond honored and grateful to be the recipient of the 2021 Stowe Narrative Lab Fellowship, sponsored by HollyShorts Film Festival. This is an incredible opportunity for me to go more deeply into my craft and to pave a way towards writing full-time in the episodic world,” says Audrey Lorea.
In addition to screenwriting, Audrey has worked behind the scenes in the film, media, and episodic industry for over eight years. Last year, she was a Semi-Finalist for the WeScreenplay Diverse Voices fellowship to the 2020 Stowe’s Narrative Lab and was admitted to the 2020 Stowe Narrative Lab.
