My name is Cristina Barletta and I’m an MA Screenwriting student at the National Film & Television School in England. I graduated in May 2013 from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. I majored in Media Production with a focus on Screenwriting, and minored in Creative writing. During my time at the university I studied Shakespeare abroad in London and Oxford (hence the blog name), worked as a photographer for The Daily Tar Heel, and held two jobs, one of which was with Carolina Performing Arts, where I got to see a ton of excellent performances.
I’m looking to have a career in writing for television and possibly for theatre. I’d ideally love to work in London, but at the moment I’m taking any experience I can get. I’ve written scripts, one play, and several short stories.
This blog is for anything and everything I feel like writing about: topics that catch my interest, news from my life, travel stories, and posts about television shows, films, plays, and books. I hope you enjoy what you find here!
