W. M. AKERS (Stella Starlight: Queen of Space - Playwright) is a native of Nashville, Tennessee who speaks, to his great disappointment, without an accent. In 2010 he graduated from NYU's dramatic writing program, where he wrote four good plays, two bad ones, and received the John Golden Playwriting Prize In Excellence in recognition of his body of work, which was found to be much nicer than his actual body. In 2011, Sanguine Productions mounted a thrilling version of his play, Cary's Chain Store Massacre, and in 2012, Squeaky Bicycle did the same with Pop Dies In Vegas. They repeated the trick in 2014, with Tales of Love & Lasers. When not writing plays, he makes a living impersonating a journalist. His long term goal is to become playwright in residence on the moon.
