Alexandra Keister is a comedy screenwriter who occasionally dips into drama.  She believes every genre benefits from a little crossover and everyone needs to laugh, cry, and occasionally scream. 

Alexandra writes not only for her own catharsis, but for others to share in feeling and overcoming – even if it’s only to escape for a few minutes and forget the doldrums that can be everyday life.

In 2017, she placed third overall in the NYC Midnight Short Screenplay Competition against ~1,000 writers (and she recommends the competition to any screenwriter who wants to sharpen their craft!). 

In 2019, she won Willamette Writers’ FilmLabTV Webseries Pilot Competition, and her short, “The Talk,” went on to be produced in Portland and is now circulating festivals (and not doing too shabby, either).

Alexandra aims for brevity, punchy dialogue and snappy action. 

Alexandra also hates speaking in the third person and feels like Gollum doing so.
