Like most writers, an experienced life inevitably translates to a natural and gifted storyteller. Chelsea Watkins as been pursuing the arts for most of her life - from actively chasing the dream of being a dancer at a young age, to acting and screenwriting, she has since converted her storytelling abilities into a streamlined business where she assists high school students in their college application and essay writing process. Always writing, though, Watkins is the epitome of a determined screenwriter and the ISA is proud to call her one of our Emerging Screenwriters Finalists.
In this interview we discuss the hurdles and obstacles any creative person faces when pursuing a career in the arts, but more so we focus on the ways in which we can overcome such obstacles. Whether there is an unconscious bias toward female writers or not, Chelsea isn't concerned. Her devotion to telling an excellent story remains at the top of her to-do list and we will continue to cheer her on every step of the way.
