Jennifer Dunn grew up in rural North Georgia between a cemetery and a trailer park, and wore a homemade dress to prom, twice.
She’s now a recovering tech entrepreneur pursuing a career in TV writing and filmmaking.
Her short films WHY DOESN'T SHE LEAVE? and BABY SHOES have both won awards on the film festival circuit, and she is in post on three more projects, including the coming-of-age/horror short GRANDPA.
Her first 1-hour drama television pilot, BIRDSONG won the 2020 Atlanta Film Festival Pilot Competition and the 2021 Creative Screenwriting Unique Voices Competition in Drama, and placed in a finalist in multiple competitions including Screencraft, Cinestory and WeScreenplay.
Jennifer is also the founder of NotesCommunity.com - the easiest way for screenwriters to find writers groups.
Behind the story I tell is the one I don't.
Behind the story you hear is the one I wish I could make you hear. Behind my carefully buttoned collar is my nakedness, the struggle to find clean clothes, food, meaning, and money.
Behind sex is rage, behind anger is love, behind this moment is silence, years of silence.
- Dorothy Allison
