Nice to meet you, my name is Brendan Whitt…
I am a self-published author, screenwriter and independent filmmaker from Cleveland, Ohio and based in Los Angeles. I earned my B.A. in Journalism and Promotional Communication form in 2014 and my M.A. in English in 2019, both from Cleveland State. I first discovered my love of writing at the age of 13 when he took home first prize at the 2005 "Power of the Pen" competition for my district.
I have published two novellas (A Summer in Harlem, Camp ’67) two short collections of poetry (If I Wrote A Hip-Hop Album, When the Crows Come Home) as well as an one act play (…A-Minor). I have also written several features appearing in Cleveland publications the Call & Post and Volume Magazine Cleveland. In 2018 I started my own creative content company OPAL. Under OPAL I produced a no budget Indie film (You Gotta Be Woke, 2018), short form documentary (Under the Tent, 2018) and a staged reading of selections from A Summer In Harlem (A Trip Up North 2017).
