Judy Bridges

Author Biography

Judy Bridges is the author of Shut Up & Write! and the founder of Redbird Studio writing center in Milwaukee, WI, where she offered 3-5 workshops a week and mentored hundreds of published writers. Prior to founding the studio, she earned her living writing speeches and sales training programs, personal essays, magazine articles, short stories and plays. Her passion for helping others find their writing voices came to life at the studio, where over 6,000 students of all ages and backgrounds attended workshops and followed their dreams. Renowned for her humorous, no nonsense approach to writing, Judy is also a fan of self-publishing "under the right conditions."  She self-published Shut Up & Write! and is currently working on a collection of family stories titled, You Drive, You're too Drunk to Sing.
