Description

Most books on writing for film emphasize script mechanics only, excluding lessons in the all-important aspects of plotting and narrative. In The Art of Screenwriting, both elements—techniques and story—receive their proper due, resulting in one of the most intelligent and useful how-to books on writing for the screen yet published.

"William Packard's The Art of Screenwriting speaks directly to the young screenwriter, addressing crucial questions of development, treatment, the rewriting process, and the subsequent agenting of material with clarity, honesty, and intelligence. It remains practical and realistic, and reads like a good story should."
–Janet Neipris, Chairman, The Dramatic Writing Program, Institute of Film & Television, New York University

"Practical for the budding scriptwriter of any age or experience."
–Library Journal

William Packard has taught playwriting and acting at the H.B. Studio in New York City since 1965. His own plays have been produced and directed by such theatrical luminaries as Gene Frankel and Otto Preminger. He is the founder and editor of The New York Quarterly, as well as a screenwriter, poet, and novelist.
