Jodi Levitan began her writing career without words, first finding success writing mime and clown routines. Those routines grew into longer stories, and those stories grew into full length award-winning screenplays.

Jodi’s screenplays are character-driven stories with strong female leads that reach a multi-generational audience. All of her scripts are award winners in major screenplay contests, including The Austin Film Festival, Big Break, The Page Awards, StoryPros, The Richmond Film Festival and The American Zoetrope Screenplay Competition with Francis Ford Coppola serving as judge.  With her most recent script, Jodi was the grand prize winner of the Emerging Screenwriters Shoot Your Sizzle competition. A short version of the screenplay was shot in December.

Jodi received her BA in theater from StonyBrook University and graduated from the Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff, Wales, with a concentration in performance. She currently resides in Oceanside, New York.
