Book Description

Writing Off Script: Writers on the Influence of Cinema is an e-anthology of essays by authors exploring the relationship between movies and their work. It has been edited by Dr. Cynthia Hawkins and all proceeds will go towards benefiting the JET 14 Program through the Joplin Schools Tornado Relief Fund.

Contributors to this engrossing anthology of work include Robin Antalek (The Summer We Fell Apart), Matthew Baldwin (of The Nervous Breakdown), Sean Beaudoin (You Killed Wesley Payne), Ernessa T. Carter (32 Candles), Richard Cox (Thomas World), Elizabeth Eslami (Bone Worship), actor/screenwriter/author D. R. Haney (Banned for Life), film composer and The Dewey Decimal System author Nathan Larson, independent documentary filmmaker Vernon Lott (Bad Writing), Nathaniel Missildine (, Greg Olear (Fathermucker), Neal Pollack (Stretch), Claude Clayton Smith (The Stratford Devil), and interviews with David Small (Stitches), Patrick deWitt (The Sisters Brothers), Teddy Wayne (Kapitoil), and publisher Simon Smithson.

Included in Writing Off Script is a special section for educators looking for effective ways to extend film to the creative writing and literature classrooms with creative writing prompts and exercises (inspired by the essays in the collection) and additional essays by Assistant Professor of English and North American Review Associate Editor Dr. J. D. Schraffenberger, Director of Writing and Literature at the Borough of Manhattan Community College Dr. Geoff Klock, and Associate Director of First-Year Writing at Binghamton University Dr. Kristi Murray Costello.

The anthology covers writers who learned to get better by going to film school, writers who learned how to craft compelling characters by watching actors up on the silver screen, and writers who found their lives indelibly touched by the magic of cinema. This collection is a must-have for students of literature and film alike, as well as fans of good writing.
