Goran Stefanovski (Macedonian Cyrillic: Горан Стефановски) (born April 27, 1952 in Bitola, SR Macedonia, then Yugoslavia)[1] is a leading Macedonian dramatist and scriptwriter, now based in Canterbury, Kent in the UK. He achieved considerable success with his work before moving to the UK in the early nineties.

His 1993 play Sarajevo played at the Riverside Studios in Hammersmith[2] and, like much of his subsequent work, dealt with the political and social fallout from the division of the former Yugoslavia. In 2004 work Everyman also played at the Riverside and on tour with Theatre Melange, enhancing his reputation for uncompromising treatment of the themes of identity, cultural history and politics. He combines his writing with lecturing in Scriptwriting at Canterbury Christ Church University.

He is the brother of Vlatko Stefanovski, a well known virtuoso guitarist.
