Lee Shackleford

teacher, scriptwriter, voice actor, script doctor, director, podcaster


I’m Lee Shackleford, and if anybody apart from my friends, family, and students knows who I am, it’s because of my work as a writer for stage, screen, and radio.

I also have the honor and pleasure of teaching for my alma mater, the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Theatre Department, even though I live 400 miles away. (Ya gotta love the internet.) I teach Playwriting, Screenwriting, and Introduction to Cinema. Sometimes I also write and/or direct things for them.

One of my favorite aspects of my life at UAB began in 2003, when I began producing a Festival of Ten-Minute Plays featuring new works by student playwrights. We produced a new Festival annually for sixteen years, usually playing to standing-room-only houses. A thrilling high-wire act every time, putting these untested shows out before a live audience!
