TV Writing & Playwriting Tips with Bekah Brunstetter

I love TV teen dramas. It all started with My So-Called Life and 90210 (the old school one, duh). My fave teen drama is Friday Night Lights fan (clear eyes, full hearts can’t lose!), but I have a special place for Switched at Birth. It’s about two teen girls who are switched at birth, and […]
