Isabel Dawn (born Isabel Lydia Seitz; October 20, 1897 – June 29, 1966) was an American screenwriter, actress, and journalist active primarily in the 1930s and 1940s.
Born in Evansville, Indiana, to John Seitz and Viola Wright, Isabel worked at newspapers like The Evansville Courier and The Kokomo Dispatch and attended Valparaiso University before moving to New York City. Around this time, she married her first husband, Thomas Goss.
While in New York City, she and a fellow playwright were hit by a taxi; she spent a good deal of time in the hospital recovering. Her writing partner did not make it.

Many of her screenplays were written for Republic Pictures; she frequently worked with director Joseph Santley.
