Rose McAleese she/her

Y-WE Write Facilitator

Rose McAleese (Mac a Lease) was born on Halloween night in Seattle where she was delivered by a doctor in a giant spider costume, which pretty much set the tone for the rest of her life. One of Rose’s superpowers is she is self-taught, choosing alternative forms of education. Which she loves to share. She studied at the women writers collective Hedgebrook, where she focused on screenwriting, television writing, non-fiction writing, and memoir development with dramatist/screenwriter Winnie Holzman, writer/director/producer Robin Swicord, television writer/producer Felicia D. Henderson, and novelist Hannah Tinti. After moving to Los Angeles, Rose was awarded a year-long paid fellowship in the Universal Pictures Emerging Writers Fellowship Program in 2016-2017. She recently completed a residency at Yaddo in Saratoga Springs, New York. In addition to working as a professional writer, she also teaches. She is currently a producer and writer on the hit tv show BMF.

Rose continues to reside full-time in Los Angeles because she figures what that city needs is one more writer.
