A young girl’s personified emotions—Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness—try their best to guide her through the chaos of growing up.

Presented as part of the 15th Annual Screenwriting Research Network International Conference, with screenwriter Meg LeFauve in conversation.


The Screenwriting Research Network (SRN) is comprised of scholars, writers, and practice-based researchers. Started in 2006, the network currently has 700 members from 50+ countries. The 15th annual conference is organized by the Stephens College MFA in TV and Screenwriting and the School of Integrative Studies at Stephens College. The arts and humanities thrive in Columbia, Missouri, as dozens of on- and off-campus performances occur year-round at Stephens, making the College one of Columbia’s premier centers for the performing arts.

Coming from a host college that focuses on female participation in the arts, the conference theme “Gender and the Female Gaze” will discuss the contributions of female screenwriters and the plethora of female-focused stories told on screen from the Silent Era through the modern-day.
