Part 1 - The Origin of the Black List
So the new Black List is out! You can find it on their website here or you can just mosey on over to Go into the Story for the details.
Every year, the release of a new Black List is accompanied by some familiar complaints (and if I'm being frank, some misunderstandings) about the selections. While I had the list's creator, Franklin Leonard, in the hot seat, I couldn't resist asking him about this. So if you are suspicious that agents and managers try to manipulate the list, or you hate the fact that so many established writers are on it instead of undiscovered ones, you probably should take a look at this.
The final part will come tomorrow!
