Personal Bio

Julia Swift has produced, written, shot, directed and edited award winning short films. She has received multiple fellowships but her proudest moment was watching her film "Telling Stories" screen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. While creating her independent and experimental films, Julia worked writing TV, feature film and video game scripts for production companies including Warner Bros., NBC, the CW, Universal, Fox, Regency, Electronic Arts, Crytek, Sony Pictures, Dick Wolf Productions and Reese Witherspoon's Type A Productions. Three of her produced TV episodes (for "Smallville" and "Hercules") were chosen as "Pick of the Week" by both Entertainment Weekly and TV Guide. Her coming of age novel, BOLD, hit the top ten best-seller list in Amazon's teen issues category.

Julia is active in the Writers' Guild of America, having served on the Appropriations Committee, as co-chair of the Committee of Women Writers and as a founding member of the WGA e-publishing group.

Before joining the faculty at Champlain College, Julia taught at Chicago's Flashpoint Tribeca Film School and at California State University, Northridge.
