Y-WE Write Facilitator

Rose McAleese 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.  
She studied at the prestigious women writer’s 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. 
Rose’s freelance journalism has appeared in several print and online publications including The New York Times. She has written for three cable TV series: THE QUAD on BET, SNEAKERHEADS on Netflix, and BMF on Starz. In addition to working as a professional writer, she also teaches screenwriting at Hugo House Rose continues to reside full-time in Los Angeles because she figures what that city needs is one more writer.
