Faculty Wins Awards
“Eddie is one of those rare teachers who understands (and adores) the creative process. By his example foremost, he encourages and challenges us to become more honest writers. Eddie demands that we know our characters fully, that we tell our stories bravely, that we commit to our scripts deeply. Simply put, Eddie has taught me the art of truly original screenwriting.” Taiye Tuakli-Wosornu, New York City
