New Book from CMCI’s Dr Bridget Conor

Congratulations to CMCI’s Dr Bridget Conor on the publication of her new book Screenwriting: Creative Labor and Professional Practice (Routledge 2014).Screenwriting

The book analyzes the histories, practices, identities and subjects which form and shape the daily working lives of screenwriters and Dr Conor considers the ways in which contemporary screenwriters navigate and make sense of the labor markets in which they are immersed.

The chapters explore areas including: screenwriting histories and myths of the profession; screenwriting as creative labour; screenwriters’ working lives; screenwriting work and the how-to genre and screenwriting work and inequalities.

Drawing on historical and critical perspectives of mainstream screenwriting in the USA and UK, as well as valuable interviews with working screenwriters, this book presents a highly original and multi-faceted study of screenwriting as creative labor and professional practice.
