When the folks hosting the conference announced their theme as “Screen Narratives: Chaos and Order” the word ‘chaos’ immediately brought to mind writers rooms. I offered a quick history of writers rooms (the presentations are only 20 minutes long) and then quoted several current showrunners on how they compose their rooms and how they run them.
Presenting my talk at most recent SRN Conference in Porto, Portgual
I’m pleased to announce that I am beginning the first year of a two year term on the Executive Committee of the Screenwriting Research Network. I will assist with editing the newsletter and meet via Skype once a month with some of the most wonderful colleagues I’ve had the chance to work with so far in my career.
The Screenwriting Research Network was established in 2006 by Ian Macdonald when it became clear that there was interest across the world towards research on screenwriting, but individual scholars tended to be isolated. I’ve been a member since I attended my first conference in Madison, Wisconsin. Since then I’ve presented at – and listened to fascinating presentations – in such wonderful international locations as Leeds, New Zealand, Milan and Porto, Portugal – with Oxford and Vienna next on the list.
And I’m most excited about the fact that the 2022 conference will be held at my home campus of Stephens College!
We brought back this bottle of Portuguese wine from our trip to share with our friends. It is excellent and well balanced. Despite being in Porto I didn’t pick up any port wine except for a small bottle we were given as a gift. Although I did taste port several times while we were there.
