Margaret Atwood has never been more relevant than she is today. Readers are turning to her work as they face the rise of authoritarian politics, rapidly evolving technologies, and the slow-motion disaster of climate change. Her poetry and books are about survival, but they are also survival tools themselves. The recent success of the television adaptation of her novel, The Handmaid’s Tale, has made Atwood a household name. The launch of her sequel, The Testaments, has been international news. Millions follow her early morning Tweets. We list her credits as a Producer first.

NOTE: Almost all of the films or series based on her writing were adapted for the screen by someone else, which is why her credits as a Screenwriter are scant.
