From Practical Writing to Screen Writing
This afternoon, about 40 students interested in screenwriting had a chance to encounter alumnus Mike Daniels (B.A. English/Practical Writing, 1999) in Dr. Casey McKittrick's Film class. Daniels, who is currently a member of the screenwriting team forOne Tree Hill, a teen, young adult television drama on the WB TV Network, spoke about his path from English major to screenwriter, describing the positive and negative aspects of seeking a career in his field. We hope to bring him back to teach a workshop for a select group of interested students in the future.
