Elizabeth Wray Writer


Elizabeth Wray

I write stories for the global marketplace. My writing has been polymorphous over the years – from opera librettos to feature articles. These days I work in three areas: video scripts to illuminate a company’s social responsibility programs; narratives for universities and healthcare orgs; articles and stories for a variety of magazines. Root facts: I grew up in Oklahoma, spent 7 years working as a playwright, dance Cuban salsa, and ingest large quantities of history and historical fiction.

I’m surprised at the waves of feelings that surge up like troops inside […]

Creative Partner: Mike Hartley @ bigflannel

Mike is the wonder who designed/engineered my new website AND taught me how to upload and manage it all by my leaning-toward-Luddite self. Imaginative, upbeat, patient, kind, a great speller, and he speaks Brit, Mike and his company bigflannel work out of Brooklyn and his native London. He has the knack of leading you to […]

Creative Partner: Wondros

One of the joys of my work is collaborating with partners like Wondros, based in Los Angeles. Wondros describes itself as a creative playground for storytellers, strategists, innovators, designers, troublemakers, artists, dreamers, and doers.
