    Award-Winning Author, Screenwriter and Southwestern College Alum

    Join us to welcome J.M. “Joe” Straczynki back to campus. Students and attendees will learn Joe’s path to success, the difference Southwestern College made in shaping him as a writer and participate in a Q & A session.

    Film credits include Changeling for Clint Eastwood, Ninja Assassin for the Wachowskis, Thor for Kenneth Branagh, Underworld Awakening for Kate Beckinsale and World War Z for Brad Pitt. Television credits include series such as Babylon 5, Crusade, Jeremiah and new Netflix series Sense8, written and produced with the Wachowskis (The Matrix, Cloud Atlas).

    and in no way your fault, just irritating, they misspelled his name, hope the schools English and language courses are up to a better standard than their social media correspondent :P

    Will you be there Jan and busily transcribing away?
    "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

      Thanks. Fixed.

      I doubt it. While my credit card might stand the pain, I really need to not spend the money. Sorta wish I'd known about this one first. I'd *love* to see JMS in a Q&A with college students.

        So it says current and past students, not open to the public. Do you think they'll be checking people's IDs at the door? Do you think JMS will demand swift punishment for outsiders?

          Nah, he posted that it's a pretty small venue - only about 300 seats so students would have first priority.

          They just posted a photo of JMS speaking to the student newspaper, the Sun.

          Some folks may remember several years ago when JMS paid for a print run for them when there was some shenanigans with financing a print run that was critical of the college board (details here: http://jmsnews.com/forums/showthread.php?p=70692 ) So I'm betting that JMS is pretty much a hero to them.

              Here's a great photo with JMS and John Iacovelli and William Virchis who we can thank for buying JMS first paid play...you've got it, 'Snow White'!

              Hmm...I know John Iacovelli's done theatrical set design. Maybe JMS can have him do that for him again? That would be cool.
