THERESA COULTER
August 2012

NY, NY – “I’m a scrapper, curious and entrepreneurial in spirit. My imagination sometimes gets me in trouble. I’ll try anything once, except drugs and egg salad. I believe that to walk in creativity, we must act with courage, utter resolve, consuming passion and be absolute and unrelenting in our search for the truth.
      I work as a freelance writer in New York City and have written scripts for Tina Fey and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, only one of whom remarked, “This girl is funny.” I have been a Ledig House International Fellow and a resident at Hedgebrook and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. My memoir Something Pretty Inside is currently in auction and my screenplay Survived By is a finalist in the Austin Film Festival.  I am represented by Dunow, Carlson & Lerner Literary Agency.”
