My name is Abbie Fine. I describe myself as:
Author. Always a storyteller and huge book nerd, my first novel came out with Evernight Teen December 8, 2017. I'm revising a new manuscript and always looking to learn all I can about writing & publishing. You can learn more about my debut book here!
Theatre director. Specialties include Shakespeare (accessible adaptations), Irish plays, solo shows, female-centered new plays, heightened language, simplistic/high impact design, focus on storytelling. Check out my projects page for reviews of my latest production.
Nonprofit manager. I recently served as the Managing Director of NextStop Theatre Company, a professional theatre in Northern Virginia. I am currently a Director at a grant writing & strategic consulting firm Elevate. I support nonprofits in their grant writing programs, including prospecting, cultivation, and strategic proposal-writing.
Management instructor. I sometimes teach Principles of Management as an adjunct at George Mason University; especially interested in job design, motivating employees, organizational culture -- specifically, what the corporate world can learn from the arts.
An entrepreneur-in-waiting. Interested in startups and creative business models; actively looking for the right idea for me.
