WiFT-Louisiana Membership Grants


Congratulations to WiFT Member Michelle L. Silva of Entertainment Goes on being awarded our 2023 Producer Grant! We are so excited for you and look forward to seeing what you create.

Entertainment GOES, an award-winning New Orleans based production company focused on writing, producing, and providing public relations through unique and passion-driven stories.


Michelle L. Silva, a retired professional dancer whose former career includes Busch Gardens Theme Park, a national tour with Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus, Siegfried & Roy, the Lido de Paris in Paris, France, and the Stardust Hotel brings her artistic vision to each project. A Michigander, with a strong Midwest accent, Michelle began her professional career at 17 after quitting high school in her senior year. Nearly a decade later, she entered academia and graduated college at 31, saying, "those five years were the most consuming and structured days of my life--going to school during the day and performing at night."


An avid writer, Michelle often questioned if "writing fueled my artistic self, or if the movement (dance) fueled my writing?"


Michelle holds a B.A. in Communication Studies from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and her media has been placed in Dallas, Texas, Las Vegas, Nevada, and Pass Christian, Mississippi, to name a few.
