Lowen Jeffery (they/them)

I am a fledgling writer, mainly in stageplays, and hope to continue playwriting into university and beyond. So far, two of my plays have been produced by APA’s Dramatic Production department: “Cracking the Case,” and, “The Guest.” If you’ve read any of my work, no, I don’t really know what it’s about either.
