Hey, I'm Chanel!

Santa Monica, California

Chanel Glover is a ‘trained’ lawyer, teacher, and playwright, with a current focus on screenwriting, lyricism and fiction, but she desires most to be the first Black (Lesbian) Superwoman to rid the world of menacing stereotypes with just the stroke of her pencil. In May 2014, she completed an MFA in playwriting at Ohio University where her full-length plays HOW TO EAT AN OREO, BLACK AS THE DIRT, and THEY’RE NOT RAPPERS received staged readings at Ohio University’s Seabury Quinn, Jr. Playwrights’ Festival. Chanel served as one of six playwrights in terraNOVA Collective’s Groundbreakers Playwrights Group, where she had a staged reading of her workshopped play HOW TO EAT AN OREO, in April 2015. She was screenwriter for the trending SEX IS A GOD THING short in 2014, and is now developing the script for the upcoming 2018 web-series of the same title. For nearly a year, starting in the summer of 2016, Chanel served as co-host and producer of a podcast, OVERQUALIFIED & DRUNK, where she dished about all of her dating and life secrets. She retired from the secondary school teaching profession after only two years, and made the recent move from NYC to LA, where she is pursuing the dream.
