Lindiwe Mueller-Westernhagen is an award-winning songwriter turned screenwriter. As the daughter of an American author and South African mother who created South Africa’s first TV talk show, it was this backdrop where Lindiwe learned the power of words, media, and the arts, to share stories that impact our world.
Lindiwe’s characters are ones that fight to break stigmas, rebels that show their human spirit rise up time and time again, and outcasts that stand up against social norms of society. 
Her first short film, Desmond’s Not Here Anymore, won the 2019 HollyShorts Screenplay contest and her scripts have been finalists in other international screenwriting competitions. She is an ISA Development Slate writer and a Stowe Story Labs alumni.
