Documentary film makers and cofounders of Burnt Twig Productions Sara Lewis and Kristin Santa Maria are currently working on The Writing Life. The film promises to explore “the process, eccentricities, and motivation of working writers on location at their homes and work spaces.” What began as a small-scale graduate school project has turned into a feature-length film that has its creators traveling from coast to coast to interview some of the best living American authors. To support this project go to Kickstarter.
The following is a preview of interviews in the film. Authors Steve Almond and Elizabeth Cohen talk about the writing life.
