Charles Bowe is a poet and former screenwriter with a degree in history and classics from Rutgers University. His first ever job in the entertainment business was personal chef to the rock band Soul Asylum at Pachyderm Studios in Cannon Falls, MN.

He published dozens of film reviews for weekly papers in Minneapolis before he began screenwriting, and directed music videos for Grant Hart (formerly of Hüsker Dü) and Stan Ridgway (Wall of Voodoo). His first feature was a drama called New World Symphony (2003), which premiered at the Minneapolis-St.Paul International Film Festival.

In Los Angeles he worked for Skycastle Entertainment, and was associate producer on its Reggie Award-winning series for Sprint at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. In New York, he has worked as a location manager for independent features and consulted on numerous feature scripts. He wrote and co-produced the short films “Late Late,” directed by Samrat Chakrabarti, and “Six Women,” directed by Teddy Schenck, and is helping develop feature-length thrillers for both Schenck and director Soham Mehta.

As poet he was a company member of the Verbal Supply Company. and his poems recently appeared in Poetry for the Actor, A Guide to Deeper Truth, edited by Deborah Hedwall. He has taught story-telling for non-profits with Social Impact of Philadelphia. In 2018 he left Brooklyn for the mid-Hudson Valley, where he lives on Lenape land, manages a restaurant, and blathers on and on, to anyone who will listen, about local hero Sojourner Truth and the Dutch origins of Hudson Valley towns, which were a post-industrial hellscape before they were cool.
