About

Kevin Stuart Brodie’s day job is as a high school history teacher, but he has been writing and publishing most of his adult life. He has published essays in the Santa Cruz Spectacle, Grassroots Economic Organizing (where he once served as contributing editor), and poetry in a number of publications including Sojourners. Kevin has done a number of poetry readings throughout southern New England. He has been twice nominated for the Pushcart Prize.

A few years ago, a story that had tormenting him for months was consistently refusing to be written as a novel, despite Mr. Brodie’s best efforts to turn it into one. He finally realized that he actually saw the story as a movie and wrote his first screenplay, “Ashes.” That script, work shopped at the Pulse Ensemble Theater in New York City, placed in both the Writer’s Digest and Century City Film Festival competitions.  It was also a quarter finalist in the 2012 Nicholl Fellowship for Screenwriting.

Incurably infected with the screenwriting bug, Kevin has since written four others, and all have been work shopped in New York with Pulse. One of his most recent efforts, “Season of Mists,” has won thirteen different contests and festivals and reached the semifinal round of the Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting. Mr. Brodie recently assisted San Francisco area producer Brant Smith (“Quality of Life”) with script development and on set script supervision for his forthcoming project, “In World War.” Kevin is a graduate of UCLA’s MFA program, Dov Simens’ Film School, and Robert McKee’s Story Seminar.

Recently, Mr. Brodie has branched out into play writing.  He has had two one act plays produced at the Playhouse on Park theater in West Hartford, Connecticut,  In October 2016, his first two act play “Invincible Summer” was staged for a reading at the John Desotelle Theater in New York City.

A former district Teacher of the Year, Kevin lives in Storrs, Connecticut with a silly English Shepherd named Lollie.

    Hey Kevin,

    Valerie connected with my wife at the farmer’s market (she sells flowers) and then Valerie snapped some photos of my kids on our farm in Ashford. All that is to say, Valerie suggested I drop you a note about my indie publishing concern, Elephant Rock Books.com We’re a trade publisher putting out high quality books. And we’re getting into craft e-books. Plus, I’ve produced DVDs on writing. I taught for 20 years in the creative writing department at Columbia College Chicago. Now I’m a resident faculty member at the Yale Summer Writing Conference.

    We also run the Roar reading series an at the new Uconn Co-Op. Just in our second short season, and trying to develop some literary community around the new bookstore. Please come check it out and perhaps read during our winter season. It’s the first Monday of the month at 7pm. Next one is Nov. 3, on Monday. There is a listing for the reading on our site. Please spread the word to local writers. I’m relatively new to the area and making inroads.

    Hope to see you Monday.

    Cheers,

    Jotham Burrello
