Mary Beth Leidman,
along with doctoral candidate T.J. Brown and two graduates of the
Communications Media and Instructional Technology PhD program, Laura
Wilson and Matthew McKeague, recently published a new textbook titled
Scriptwriting Systems for the New Millennium.
The book is designed
to guide novice writers through the specifics of various genre and skill sets
necessary to create publishable, creative product, which can lead to real marketability
in varying media.
This is the first time a collaboration between Communications
Media faculty and students has resulted in a book.
