Naomi Orwin is a freelance writer who has made Philadelphia her home since 2012.
She combines her love of words and the arts to write for and about theater, film, and dance. Before coming to Philly she taught screenwriting and women’s films at the School of Film and Animation at Rochester Institute of Technology, where she was instrumental in developing the screenwriting program. She also covered people, places, and events for the local paper, The Jewish Ledger.
She was associate writer on the Lifetime TV series Our Group, a scripted group therapy program, and lyricist for the award-winning children's TV show Unicorn Tales and the children’s musical Western The Phantom Kid. She has published newsletters and articles in local and national magazines and newspapers on religion, spirituality, education, and women's issues.
She is now focusing on her own writing about the arts and developing a blog about what goes on behind the scenes in Philadelphia. She is also finishing a book called Tarot for Writers on how to find creative inspiration.
