Idea to Print. Story to Life.

AZ Yeamen


As a writer, AZ believes her job is not only to document history, but to be a penetrating voice in the midst of history. Under her new company Bridge 17, AZ's mission is to bridge the gap between producers and writers, providing them with the tools and structure to get their stories told.

The beauty of Bridge 17 is collaboration with brilliant minds.

Everybody's got a story to tell, but everyone's not a storyteller.

~Danielle C. Dunn
