Caroline Gordon-Elliott founded the Writers and Actors Group in 2013 with the weekly Writing & Acting Workshop where screenwriters, playwrights and actors come together to workshop scripts. Since then, she has expanded WAG to including screenwriting classes, acting classes, and private coaching to adults and kids. Above all else, Caroline is proudest of the community of artists who have joined and remained active members of WAG. Caroline has been teaching adults and children for over fifteen years. In addition to teaching under WAG, she has taught at the Crossroads School, Occidental College's Intrax Summer Institute, My Learning Springboard, and the Young Americans Theater Company. She trained at the Williamstown Theater Festival, Interlochen Arts Center, LA Connection Improv, Choate Summer Theater, a two-year course in Meisner Technique in Los Angeles, Robert McKee's Story seminar, and she holds a Certificate in Applied Positive Psychology.
After training as an actor since the age of eight, and receiving her B.A. from Vassar College in drama and political science, she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting. She wrote, co-directed, and performed in three plays in Hollywood, and worked behind the camera in film and Reality TV. Additionally, she co-founded The Monkey Box, a successful online sketch comedy show, where she wrote, directed, and performed in multiple sketches. In 2011, she returned to New York where she produced her own short film, P.T.A-Holes. Caroline lives in Westchester County with her husband and three children.
