The Writer: Emma Sumlin

I am a screenwriter with big dreams. I want to act, but I also love the art of storytelling and drawing an audience into a true circumstance, or the beauty of your imagination. I think the beauty of storytelling is changing someone's perspective of what they thought they understood. All screenplays are "not for sale," but if you are a legit moviemaker or television maker who has very good credentials in the film business, let me know and I will consider selling my screenplay to you.
