The History of Hollywood Writers

Hosted by

Writers are some of the most important, and least respected, people in Hollywood. But so many people still want to be screenwriters. There are as many how-to books for writers as there are aspiring writers. But a new book isn’t about the art and craft of writing. It’s about the job of writing, and how that’s changed over the last 100 years or so.
