If you put aside all of the platitudes and pretty cliches, what are the hardcore truths of writing for film and television? What are the realities successful, working writers face on a weekly basis? Can any writer hope to break into the industry without understanding both the creative and business sides of the entertainment business?
A working journalist, author and screenwriter in his own right, John Scott Lewinski interviews countless industry professionals on the daily challenges of writing scripts while confronting the shifting state of affairs behind the Hollywood curtain. Along the way, he offers a few of his own insights in an entertaining, but brutally honest manner.
ALONE IN A ROOM not only helps turn a writer into a screenwriter – it helps that screenwriter survive the showbiz life.
