Maggie Sulc is a scriptwriter and dramaturg hailing originally from Tennessee and Texas. She first embarked for Canada after completing her BA in English at Rice University and spent 2014 acquiring her MA in Theatre and Performance Studies at York University, interning with the Shaw Festival’s literary management department, and imbibing as much performance as possible. Maggie now divides her time between developing new writing for stage, screen, and podcasts, promoting new writing and writers through the Toronto Cold Reads, and serving as a live-in mentor and support worker for two adult women with developmental disabilities. Her current writing and dramaturgy projects involve haunted antique dolls, adaptations of poetry into theatre, humanity’s first contact with alien races, and theatre and television for young audiences.
