Beverly (Bev) Chukwu is a writer, producer and script analyst of Nigerian descent. She is currently a screenwriting fellow at the James A. Michener Center for Writers, where she also studies fiction. Before starting her master’s degree, Bev satisfied her writing itch by performing personal stories at live storytelling events and teaching workshops for creative nonprofits such as Latinitas and Austin Bat Cave. From 2017 to 2018, she was an intern and episode writer for New Sky Kids a kid-friendly YouTube channel that allowed her to utilize her love for writing and interrogating childlike points-of-view. That experience led her to a personal assistant job with local and LA-based producer Kristen Mann, who tasked her with writing coverage for green-lit scripts.
Bev has produced both prerecorded and live shows, including the first TEDx South Congress event in Austin, and her latest producing project, “CLEANSE,” has screened at festivals such as Cine Las Americas and Out on Film, Atlanta’s LGBTQIA Festival.
Fun fact: Bev knows every single Disney Channel Original Movie predating the first film in the “High School Musical” franchise.
