Katharine McPhee

Katharine McPhee graduated from Flinders University with Honours in Screen (Film) Studies. Katharine is a recipient of the Colin Thiele New Writing Scholarship. 

She has been both long-listed and short-listed for the John Hinde Award for Excellence in Science Fiction, including a short-listing for her original sci-fi series, ‘Love Limits’. 

Katharine has received development funding and mentoring support from the South Australian Film Corporation. 

She has been a finalist in several Australian and international screenwriting competitions/initiatives, including for the Australian Writers’ Guild, Tasmanian Gothic Short Script Challenge, ScreenCraft, Roadmap Writers, Stage 32 and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Group.

Katharine has several projects set up with producers, both in Australia and internationally. 

She has worked in development writers’ rooms for many production companies, including Fremantle, Matchbox Pictures, and Closer Productions. She also actively works as a freelance script editor.

Katharine has an eclectic slate of TV, digital and feature projects. She is co-founder of bespoke production company Untold Productions, with her husband and emerging Indigenous producer, Josh Trevorrow.

Just like she is both a dog and a cat person, Katharine traverses various genres as a writer. But linking threads include female-centricity and underestimated people rising above adversity. 

She is a member of SPA, AWG, Business SA and Australians in LA.
