The Story Behind The Story
Screenwriting for Teens is actually the second film book I've written specifically for the high school market. My fondness for this age group, however, goes back much farther. Since 1980, I have been mentoring aspiring young writers nationwide as well as penning over 150 plays for them to perform at their schools and in community theaters. This particular book gives teens -who go to the movies more than any age group in the world - the tools to do more than just watch those movies. It gives them the tools to write their own films. Don't let the title fool you, though - just as many young-at-heart adults have plucked it off the shelves to learn the tricks of the trade and master their own screenwriting journey.
Since 1980, former actress and director Christina Hamlett has been a regular contributor of YA scripts for:
Plays - The Magazine for Young People
Contemporary Drama Service (https://www.contemporarydrama.com/SearchResults.aspx?key=Hamlett) and
Eldridge Plays and Musicals
Teachers may also want to take note of the fact that she is a regular contributor of lesson plans to School Video News (http://www.schoolvideonews.com/Authors/Christina-Hamlett/), an online resources targeted to K-12 video arts educators. These lesson plans not only have application to the craft of screenwriting but also playwriting, journalism, communications, and social studies.
