How often do you get the question: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” And if the answer is “screenwriter”, do you really know the ins and outs of what that means? Sit down with writers, producers, and executives for a discussion on what a screenwriting career in Hollywood looks like, how creativity can be honed, and how imagination isn’t just for kids. Michael H.
