Anne Koski-Wood (Finland)

Originally from Finland, Anne Koski-Wood started writing plays when she was 9 years old. She studied dramaturgy at the Theatre Academy in Helsinki, and her plays have been premiered in several theatres, including the Finnish National Theatre. One of her plays, The Favourite Song Book, was awarded Best Finnish Play of the Year and had a reading in New York. Anne has also written radio plays and TV scripts for YLE, the Finnish radio and TV channel. After moving to London, she fell in love with screenwriting while studying creative writing at the City University. Her first feature script, Catch the Moon, a comedy drama set in Gaza, is currently in development with Sixteen Films. Anne’s stories are very often about misunderstood or forgotten heroes, unspoken tragedies, or people fighting for personal freedom. Currently, she is developing a TV series involving a pack of wolves and a screenplay about war and beauty.
