Lindsay Cowdin is a lifelong resident of Fort Worth. She has a background in accounting and office management that spans almost 20 years in the fields of construction, urban redevelopment, and education. She joined the Theatre TCU staff as an Administrative Assistant in fall of 2005. Lindsay enjoys being surrounded by creativity in motion and is grateful to have found a home in theatre where she can put her problem-solving and accounting skills to good use and also wear black every day. Lindsay has served as the Festival Manager for the annual Trinity Shakespeare Festival since its inception in 2009.
As a poet, Lindsay has presented her work in Fort Worth with Sawgrass & Friends, been published in several local publications, and read as a featured poet at the monthly poetry program at Barnes & Noble and the Benbrook Public Library. She received the Chair’s Award for Poetry at the Undergraduate Creativity Festival at TCU in 2008, the Nancy P. Evans Memorial Award for Texas Writing in 2014, and a Live Theatre League award for her work with the Trinity Shakespeare Festival in 2012. Lindsay is currently working on a BA in Writing at TCU and will serve as Editor-in-Chief for eleven40seven TCU Journal of the Arts in fall 2015. She looks forward to writing wildly hilarious memoirs and publishing her poetry. Her husband, Tim Cowdin, is a digital designer and the drummer for Fort Worth’s resident ska/rock band, Sally Majestic. They both enjoy their free time at home with their two children and a really fat orange cat.
