The Writer: Alexandra Keister

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.

In 2021, she placed as a top ten finalist in Writer Duet's 48-Hour Screenplay Summer Throwdown,... Go to bio
