(Caro)line Macon

I'm a Texas-bred, Chicago-based writer of plays, poems, essays, reviews, sort of amusing emails, and short stories.

I ♡ theatre and new play development. I'm the New Works Associate at Lookingglass Theatre Company and a Tutterow Fellow at Chicago Dramatists. 

Also I ♡ growing plants, making pies, keeping a Border Collie alive, being a wife, and raising a young human son

Visit Poems While You Wait, a team of poets and our good ol’ fashioned typewriters that writes commissioned, one of a kind poetry on demand.
