Eric Winick hails from Marblehead, Massachusetts, birthplace of the American Navy. After graduating from Middlebury College, Eric spent four years in Washington, DC, where he worked as artist and/or administrator for the Potomac Theater Project, Arena Stage, Theater J, and other companies. In the mid-'90s, he moved to New York City to work as Director of Marketing for The Drama League. In 1999, he co-created the film review site Filmington with Doug French, which at the time used a little-known technique called “instant messaging” in its conversation-style reviews; that year he also became Director of Marketing for the off-Broadway theater Playwrights Horizons, where he created the marketing campaigns for such award-winning shows as I Am My Own Wife (Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award), Grey Gardens (Tony Award), and The Flick (Pulitzer Prize). From 2014-2022, he served as Chief Marketing Officer at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan. As a writer, Eric’s play Rearviewmirror appeared off-Broadway at 59 East 59th Street Theater and the Eugene O’Neill Theater Conference. Eric’s audio doc "How Are You Who You Are?" (co-produced with Jay Allison) aired on NPR's "All Things Considered." Eric currently resides in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn, New York.


Eric holds a B.A. in English and Theater from Middlebury College in Middlebury, VT. He has twice attended the Bread Loaf Writer's Conference in Vermont, and served as playwright-in-residence at the Eugene O'Neill Playwrights Conference.
