Sallie Patrick received her M.F.A. from Carnegie Mellon where she was a two-time recipient of the Shubert Fellowship for Dramatic Writing. She has written five screenplays, three plays, and has made many short films, a few that have been seen in more countries than she has visited. In 2004, she completed rewrites on The Burgermeister’s Daughter, originally written by Erin Cressida Wilson (Secretary, Fur) for the production company Girl from Queens. Patrick continues to work with Wilson as her research assistant. Patrick’s play Twelve, a dark fantasy about orphanage life in China, was part of the 2004 Pittsburg New Works Reading Series. The play has been awarded various grants for a 2006 Pittsburgh production to be directed by Heather Arnet. Patrick is an Atlanta native and holds a B.A. in Literature from Duke University. She is fascinated by circuses, fairytales, and everything macabre and plays the musical saw.
Sallie Patrick was awarded a Screenwriting grant at Carnegie Mellon in 2003 for Kingdom of Shadows
