From @douglaswelch …

Rosanne grabbed this book “The Secrets We Kept” at The Book Soup store at the Bradley International Terminal before we took off on our trip to Porto. She finished it on the trip home.

Look for a review of “The Secrets We Kept” soon from Rosanne.

 I think Rosanne uses books as a sort of time travel. She dives into the book and wakes up wherever she needs to be. This is very useful when flying 9.5 hours East and 12 hours west.

The Big Bang Theory Writer/Producers Eric Kaplan and Tara Hernandez visit with Stephens College MFA in TV and Screenwriting students

It was a double-header for the 2nd year MFA candidates when they were visited by two writers from The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon on consecutive nights this week. On the first night, Eric Kaplan (also a former David Letterman staff writer) came at the invitation of student CJ Ehrlich.

On the second night, producer Tara Hernandez sat for an interview with Khanisha Foster for our How I Wrote That podcast.

We thank them both for sharing their expertise (and their humor) with the Stephens College MFA in TV and Screenwriting.

Dr. Marissa Stevens consults on Egyptian History with Stephens College MFA in TV and Screenwriting students

On Saturday both Stephens College MFA in TV and Screenwriting cohorts had the chance to work in teams on the concept of rebooting a show from the 1970s that involved the Egyptian goddess.

As any writer does, we invited a technical consultant – Dr. Marissa Stevens – to give the teams some historical background in the culture of ancient Egypt before they broke into groups to brainstorm their new ideas.
