Joanna Zippel’s Creative Coaching practice evolved out of her work as a manager of playwrights and screenwriters—guiding their careers and helping them to pursue their passions in what is well known as an often difficult, changeable and sometimes arbitrary business. Helping highly motivated people clarify and achieve their vision has long been, and remains, central to her work as a producer, entrepreneur and coach.

Through the unique combination of her professional experience in the entertainment industry and her life coaching she can help you clarify your vision, build a solid foundation from which to make authentic career and life decisions and take practical action on them.

She has over 25 years experience as an entrepreneur, working in theatre and live event production, marketing, promotion, sponsorship, development and literary management in the entertainment business. Joanna is a long-standing member of NYWIFT and looks forward to helping her fellow NYWIFT members achieve both personal and professional success! To learn more about Joanna go to
