About this submission
Amy Jennings was born in Southern California to a large creative family. After a traumatic stage experience is 6th grade, she vowed to never take the stage again. At 23 she broke that vow and acted in 100+ plays, 15 films and 2 TV shows. Several years and a myriad of auditions later, she began to write roles for herself. This then developed into a feature length script. She found a passion for then story and has not looked back since. As a day job, she opened an art based after school program to guide young creative to fight through their fears and pursue the arts.
Amy Jennings started as an actor and still pursues that passion but when the roles don't come, she doesn't stop. Writing has become another passion, knowing there are stories that need to be told. Amy loves the under belly of the world. She watches the most vulnerable of our society and writes on their behalf. The goals for this upcoming year are to create a portfolio of work and start seeking representation as well as produce one of my pieces.
