Elaine Liner made her debut as a professional playwright and solo performer with her one-woman play Sweater Curse: A Yarn About Love at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland. She returned for a second successful Fringe run the following year and toured with the show for two years to festivals and theatres in Louisiana and in her home state of Texas. A theatre graduate of Trinity University with a master’s from Southern Methodist University, Liner spent 37 years as a professional journalist, working on staff as a columnist and critic at the Dallas Observer, Corpus Christi Caller-Times and The Blade. She has freelanced for dozens of other publications, in print and online, and founded the literary journal SALAD. In 2017, her novel 2084: An American Parable was published and is available on Amazon. She has also written a public relations how-to book for performers and artists, 107 Publicity Boosters That Work!. During the past five years, Liner has completed seven plays. Like Finishing School, they are all comedies. She most recently completed The Crickets’ Lunch, an homage to theatre critics, which received a staged reading at the first-ever Imprint Theatreworks First Impressions Festival in 2018. To supplement the tens of dollars she earns annually from playwriting, Liner edits corporate newsletters, coaches other writers toward finishing their projects and sells cool stuff on eBay and Poshmark.
