Michelle Garcia

Michelle Garcia graduated from SUNY Oswego with a degree in journalism, minoring in political science and women’s studies.

Garcia studied screenwriting and producing at UCLA, as well as improv at Upright Citizens Brigade in Los Angeles and sketch comedy at Improv Olympic, where she writes for a weekly topical sketch show, Top Story! Weekly. She lives in Santa Monica, with her comedy-writing husband. Garcia will talk about writers having a post-college career plan and related topics.
