About the Author:

CRAIG BATTY is Principal Lecturer in Screenwriting at Bournemouth University, UK. He is a writer and script consultant, and has worked on short film, feature film and television projects. He is co-author of the books Writing for the Screen: Creative and Critical Approaches (Palgrave, 2008) and Media Writing: A Practical Introduction (Palgrave, 2010).

Review:

"Dr Batty is the perfect guide to the world of screenwriting. He knows the narrative journey of a character is also a psychological one - how the outer journey is an inner voyage into the depths of human experience. His great gift is to render this visible. In doing so he provides a guidebook to the inner world of emotions. He shows how screenwriters can take audiences into the core of their being and over the course of 90 minutes return them, transformed and enriched, back to their everyday lives." - Luke Hockley, University of Bedfordshire, UK
