About this book

Screenwriters and Screenwriting is an innovative, fresh and lively book that is useful for both screenwriting practice and academic study. It is international in scope, with case studies and analyses from the US, the UK, Australia, Japan, Ireland and Denmark. The book presents a distinctive collection of chapters from creative academics and critical practitioners that serve one purpose: to put aspects of screenwriting practice into their relevant contexts. Focusing on how screenplays are written, developed and received, the contributors challenge assumptions of what 'screenwriting studies' might be, and celebrates the role of the screenwriter in the creation of a screenplay. It is intended to be thought provoking and stimulating, with the ultimate aim of inspiring current and future screenwriting practitioners and scholars.

Reviews

'Each essay included in this collection serves two purposes: information and inspiration. Craig Batty has chosen authors who have dual abilities: they understand the creative process and they are able to find the kernels of truth in their topics that speak to both method and practice in screenwriting. This book is absolutely accessible and stimulating. Batty has gathered a compendium of worthy researchers whose studies, inquiries and insights motivate and encourage readers to think more deeply on the screenwriting process and also aid those interested in the formation and construction of screenplays. His goals to shape a collection of work that is relevant to both academics and at-work screenwriters, and to put the art and craft of screenwriting into 'context' have been accomplished.' - Jule Selbo, award-winning screenwriter and Professor of Screenwriting at California State University, Fullerton
