Katherine Vondy is a Los Angeles-based writer and director working in film, theater, and literature. She is the recipient of the Davey Foundation Theatre Grant for her play The Fermi Paradox, and The Broken Heart of Gnocchi Bolognese, her award-winning short film, has screened at festivals worldwide. Kat has received writing residencies from the Vermont Studio Center, The Hambidge Center, Dorland Mountain Arts Colony, Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow, HBMG Foundation, Fresh Ground Pepper, Palazzo Stabile, Starry Night, and Wildacres. Her plays have been developed with the Salt Lake Acting Company, The Athena Project, The Blank, Paper Wing Theatre Company, Campfire Theatre Festival, and The Vagrancy (where she currently serves as playwriting group moderator). Her prose and poetry appears widely in literary journals and has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, Queen’s Ferry Best Small Fictions, and Best of the Net. She received her BA in English and Music from Amherst College and her MFA in Film and Television Production from USC. When she’s not working on a creative project, you can find her trying out new recipes, sewing items for her wardrobe, or convincing her friends to take day trips to the ostrich farm (and, OK, the vineyards, too) in Santa Barbara Wine Country.
