HCW Meeting - November 14
Watauga County Public Library, 10 - noon
Country Writers welcome Glenn A. Bruce, author of seven published books and
over 80 screenplays, as speaker at our regular meeting, November 14, 10 am at
the Watauga County Public Library. Visitors are welcomed to join us for the
meeting and for lunch at a local restaurant afterward.
Bruce moved to Hollywood, CA in his 20s, where he wrote the
films Kickboxer and Victor One, as
well as for the television series Walker: Texas Ranger, Baywatch and Assaulted Nuts. He has been teaching
Screenwriting and Acting for the Camera at Appalachian State University since
2000. Previously, he was Artist in Residence at Palm Beach School of Arts.
Glenn is a prolific writer whose goal is to release 2-3 novels
per year for the next three years. So, he doesn't get out much to appreciate
the beautiful mountains of western NC where he lives with his wife LouAnn and
their dog Gracie. His most recent books are a thriller: The Man, described as
a “dark, non-linear, roller coaster ride; and Anthem: The Practical Guide to
Being a Good
American (published in 2012.)
He will be talking about screenwriting as it compares and contrasts to
other forms of writing--along with the realities of trying to sell a screenplay
in today's market. He is currently "shopping" two screenplays in LA
and has three more he is editing to send out as soon as they're done. He is
also editing four completed novels. So, we really appreciate his taking time to
share his experiences with us.
In preparation for his talk, and just because it’s good material,
recommends our reading the article at: http://www.thescreenplayscoop.com/index.php?action=social&c=2b44928ae11fb9384c4cf38708677c48.128
