Being a bisexual woman of color who struggled to find her identity whilst battling anxiety and depression, Khadijah Iman writes genre scripts that explore themes of identity, bravery, and mental health through a diverse and inclusive lens. She's from Boston, Massachusetts, and has an insanely huge family full of all sorts of interesting folks, which often informs her gritty world and character building.
She received her BFA in Creative Writing for Entertainment from Full Sail University and has participated in the LA Skins Fest TV Writers Lab (2016), LA Skins Fest TV Writers Bootcamp (2018), and the LA Skins Fest Feature Writers Lab (2019). Her scripts have placed in the Austin Film Festival, LaunchPad TV Pilot Competition, The Script Lab’s Free Screenplay Contest, and more. She's currently in the Inc Program, a screenwriting incubator where she's developing a new hour-long TV pilot with Sugar Lyn Beard and Lauren Coggiola attached as executive producers.
When she’s not writing, listening to music, or watching horror movies, Khadijah hosts a podcast called “Let’s Talk About It! w/ Khadijah Iman'' where she interviews entertainment professionals about how they handle mental health, racism, sexism, or ageism in the workplace.
