Lex Snowe

Lexia "Lex" Snowe is a writer of screenplays and thriller fiction, and a filmmaker-in-progress.

Lex's screenplays and short stories have been recognized in the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences Nicholl Fellowships, Austin Film Festival, Screencraft Awards, Commonwealth Short Story Prize and Short Edition. With several feature films in development, including one she'll be directing herself within the next five years, Lex's love of cinematic storytelling infuses almost every hour of her waking day: if she is not writing cinema or fiction, she is reading it, watching it, taking photos inspired by it, or gabbing about it to fellow story-pilgrims. Among Lex's long-term goals is the establishment of a film and TV production company through which she will shepherd other people's stories to the worldwide empathy-kindling network better known as the screen.
