Shonnon Marshall ’22 Receives Prestigious Fellowship

The Playwriting and Screenwriting alum is a 2023 Fellow at Black Boy Writes/Black Girl Writes Mentorship Initiative.

The 2023 class of mentees for the Black Boy Writes/Black Girl Writes Mentorship Initiative was announced recently. The mentees were presented by writer Mike Gauyo (Insecure, Ginny & Georgia) in partnership with Stage 32 and with support from Culture Creative Entertainment, M88, and Final Draft.

Shonnon Marshall ’22 (Playwriting and Screenwriting) was one of only 12 selected for this prestigious fellowship. The yearlong initiative provides pre-WGA Black writers with a pathway to becoming established screenwriters in entertainment.

Marshall is a multi-hyphenate artist from New York City, working as an actor, writer, and filmmaker. Growing up gay as a first-generation American to Jamaican and Cuban parents, Marshall brings a unique perspective to his work, with a particular focus on showcasing Black, Afro-Latino, and queer characters in nuanced leading roles.

Congratulations, Shonnon!
