Andrea Stolowitz is a 2012 Oregon Literary Fellowship recipient in drama.
Andrea is a graduate of the MFA playwriting program at the University of California San Diego. She currently teaches at Willamette University and the University of Portland, and has served on the theater studies faculty at Duke University and UC San Diego. She is a founding member of Playwrights West and is the Portland Regional Representative to the Dramatists Guild. Andrea’s plays, Bad Family, Seascapes, Playing the Course, Berlin Circles, Hotel Traumbad, and Geological Disturbances have been finalists or winners for numerous awards and prizes.
When asked what’s in the works, Andrea says: “The next play I intend to write centers around women soldiers. I have been very interested in the experience of women soldiers both in terms of what they experience during their military service, but also once they return home. Currently women veterans have a significantly higher suicide rate than their male counterparts. I am interested in interviewing women veterans and hearing about their combat experience and their civilian experience.”
