Feature Film Certificate alum Lisa Knight has had writing and career success recently, which she attributes to lessons and encouragement attained in the Writers’ Program. Lisa says, “I wasn’t sure I could find a paying job doing what I love until I met Barney Lichtenstein, my instructor for the course Writing Coverage: Story Analysis for Film and Television. His encouragement led me to many opportunities, like reading for the 2019 Atlanta Film Festival Screenplay Competition, leading a Script Shaping seminar, and my feature comedy, Birdie, made the second round in the 2018 Austin Film Festival Screenplay Competition. Many thanks to Barney and my certificate program teachers!”
In addition to these accomplishments, Lisa is currently a reader for Coverfly.
