About the Editor:
Green Chair Reader has been a dream of Dana Biscotti Myskowski's since she saw the publication of her short screenplay PLAYING HOUSE in The Pitkin Review published by Goddard College, where she earned her MFA in Creative Writing-Screenwriting.
Because there aren't many publications devoted to the screenplay, especially the short script, Dana decided to launch her own on-line web journal to offer screenwriters a place to showcase their work, and readers an opportunity to enjoy the art of the screenplay.
Dana studied screenwriting first at UCLA's Professional Programs in Screenwriting Online, earning her Professional Certificate while studying with professors from UCLA's MFA in Screenwriting Program. At Goddard College she studied two semesters with a professor who taught at both UCLA and Goddard, which confirms just how small the universe is.
Dana, who co-founded Granite SoFFA--the New Hampshire Society of Female Film Artists, is at work on several projects now, all of which can be found at her Green Chair Pictures company website.
About the Managing Editor:
Patrick Witherell is a gifted writer of screenplays, short stories, and novels. A graduate of the University of New Hampshire where he majored in English with a minor in communications and in philosophy, Patrick studied several semesters with Dana as he honed his screenplays, teleplays, and his novel.
Patrick wrote episode two of the new television series THE PROVIDER, in development with Green Chair Pictures and a713production, and has been working to help develop the show bible.
His short story "Someone Deserving" was published in the webzine Underground Voices. It's deliciously dark and not exactly standard holiday fare.
Patrick is the reason this issue finally arrived. After several seasons of proclaiming that she wanted to publish Green Chair Reader and seeing no such publication premiering, Patrick contacted Dana to see if he could help launch the first issue. Dana owes Patrick much gratitude for his tireless hours of reading and reviewing every screenplay submission.
