Karen Cronacher

Seattle, Washington, United States


I received my Masters degree in Creative Writing from Brown University, and my Ph.D. in drama from the University of Washington. I taught playwriting at Brown, and taught acting, directing, and theater design at the U.W. My plays have been produced on National Public Radio; in Austin, Texas; in Seattle, WA; and in New York. I have written and performed my own work in Seattle at On the Boards, Freehold, the New City Theater, and the Seattle Fringe Festival. I have won numerous playwriting contests, and judged two playwriting contests. My work has been published in "Monologues For Women By Women," "Theatre Journal," and the book "Feminist Theatre and Theory." I was a resident at The Millay Colony and a recipient of the American Assoc. of University Women grant. In a review of her solo performance, The Seattle Times reviewer wrote: "If Cronacher keeps the one-liners coming, maybe she too will win a Pulitzer." I have lectured at conferences in Seattle, New York, and Chicago, and presented a creativity workshop at Write on the Beach. I recently completed my first screenplay, the romantic comedy "If I Were You," which Diane Keaton's producer loved and sent to ICM. I am now working on a novel.
