Nicole Flippo (she/her/hers) attended New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where she completed a BFA in Dramatic Writing and concentrated in writing for television. She went on to complete an MFA in Writing from Sarah Lawrence College, where she concentrated in speculative fiction and was the blog editor of Lumina.
She was a recipient of the Cobell Scholarship through Indigenous Education, Inc.
As a freelance book publicist, she has generated press materials and pitches for top titles from publishers, including imprints of Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, Macmillan, and Amazon. She has also read for the Cynthia Manson Literary Agency. Nicole’s original scripts have received awards with the Brucia Television and Screenwriting Awards, Bare Bones International Film and Music Festival, Fusion Film Festival, Oklahoma State One Act Festival, Oregon Short Film Festival, Talent Factory’s Script and Storyboard Showcase, Tulsa City Smashers, and others. Her mission as an educator is to assist other writers in identifying and executing the stories they are most driven to tell, and her dream as a writer is to recreate the joy she experiences while reading her favorite books for others. When Nicole isn't busy writing or teaching professionally, you can find her exploring quirky thrift shops, reading in Fort Tryon Park, waxing poetic about dark coffee, and living it up in fandom!
