Ronika Merl
Dublin, Ireland

I’m an award winning, twice optioned screenwriter, writer, producer, lecturer, and public speaker.
Having placed highly in both the Nicholl Fellowship and the Austin Film Festival in 2019, I have since expanded my slate to now contain more than 15 feature scripts. My stories range from drama to fantasy to action, and are always centered around women like me: real, honest, heartbroken, and heartbreaking.
My latest drama "BlackBird" (an excerpt from my Memoir “The Unfinished Heart”), which is a reflection on my own journey from human trafficking towards a brighter future, has been optioned and is in the early stages of independent preproduction.

Having lectured at TV stations, Filmmaking groups, and given private tutoring sessions, I love nothing more than to create a wealth of knowledge in others (and myself).
