Interview with Nashville screenwriter Joan Tewkesbury

Check out this inspiring interview with screenwriter Joan Tewkesbury (Nashville) from Filmmaker Magazine. 

“[As a screenwriter,] you’re writing a comic book to music or math and trying to get the emotional bits at the right highs and lows. Some people are great storytellers,like off the top of their head they can sit over the kitchen table and tell you this story that breaks your heart.

Order is really important.”
