Mark Dunn (born 1956 Memphis, Tennessee) is an American author and playwright. He studied film at Memphis State University (now the University of Memphis) followed by post-graduate work in screenwriting at the University of Texas at Austin moving to New York in 1987 where he worked in the New York Public Library whilst writing plays in his free time.
Among the twenty-five plays Dunn has written (as of 2001), Belles and Five Tellers Dancing in the Rain have been produced over one hundred and fifty times. Dunn is playwright-in-residence with the New Jersey Repertory Company and the Community Theatre League in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
Dunn seems to be particularly interested in constrained writing, with Ella Minnow Pea being a "progressively lipogrammatic" epistolary novel, and Ibid: A Life, comprised entirely from the endnotes of a fictional "lost" biography.
Dunn lives with his wife Mary in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
