The New York Screenwriters Workshop sponsored by Final Draft is a weekly intensive for early-career, New York City-based screenwriters who are under-represented in the film industry. Write On host Phil Galasso talks with one of the workshop’s fellows, Beanie Barnes, along with fellowship mentors Jim Hart and Anne Carey about the program. They are also joined by Brit Fryer from the WGA East.
Beanie talks about what the program has done for her writing and career, and how she approaches her own work. “I was talking to someone about screenwriters being anthropologists. I tell my kids that as well; we’re kind of anthropologists and sociologists and psychiatrists, and we are really holding mirrors up, not just for the word but also for ourselves.”
