Pamela Gray is a screenwriter, playwright and poet whose first feature credit was A Walk on the Moon, produced by Dustin Hoffman and directed by Tony Goldwyn. The film won a National Board of Review award, an Indie Spirit Nomination for Diane Lane, and a Golden Satellite nomination for Best Original screenplay. Entertainment Weekly rated it #9 on their list of the “50 Sexiest Movies of All Time,” and Variety named Pamela one of “Ten Screenwriters to Watch.” She has adapted A Walk on the Moon into a musical which will premiere at San Francisco’s American Conservatory Theatre in June 2018.
Pamela’s other credits include Music of the Heart, which earned Meryl Streep an Oscar nomination, and Conviction, which earned Hilary Swank a SAG nomination, and won a Women Film Critics Circle Award for Best Female Images in a Movie. Pamela was the original writer of Megan Leavey, starring Kate Mara, and she adapted the bestseller The Husband’s Secret for CBS Films.
Pamela began teaching women’s writing workshops as an undergrad, after a male professor told her that women’s lives weren’t “valid subject matter” for poetry. She and Robin Swicord co-mentored the 2016 Hedgebrook Screenwriters Lab for Women.
