Amanda Schumacher

Milwaukee, Wisconsin
I have been telling stories all my life – ever since I wrote a book (on Dot Matrix printer paper no less) about a dinosaur losing a kite when I was five years old. That early-on love led me to write for The Sword and the Mukwonago Times, and ultimately to my position as Editor and Digital Communications Manager at Marcus Promotions, the local publisher of theater playbills.
My favorite days, as a writer and now communications coordinator for a non-profit, are when I can listen to someone else’s story, while I quietly piece together how I’m going to amplify their voice.
Projects include SAY NO TO THE DRESS (a ten-minute monologue for Forward Theater's 2016 Monologue Festival in Madison, Wisconsin), a half-hour comedy pilot of the same name, created during a course at Second City Chicago, and a rough draft of my first novel, a YA sci-fi/fantasy fiction centered on time travel and mental health.
