Eleanor Perry Writing Award 2017 Scholarship Winner
Through the generosity of the Law Firm Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer

“It is tremendous thrill and honor to be a recipient of the 2017 Eleanor Perry Writing Award. This award is meaningful to me on so many levels. Eleanor Perry was a fierce feminist and screenwriter, and I am proud to be a small part of her legacy. I love that this award both celebrates that feminist history and supports ambitious, upcoming women screenwriters. As a writer that is committed to writing stories about feisty, weird, and bold female characters I am extremely grateful to be embraced by the Women in Film community, especially at this early stage in my career.”

—Bridget Visser, 2017 WIF Scholar
