Workshop on Elements of Indigenous Style

By admin

“The writer’s role is to be a menacer of the public’s conscience, He must have a position, a point of view. He must see the arts as a vehicle of social criticism and he must focus the issues of his time.”

Rod Serling quoted in An Early Run-In With Censors Led Rod Serling to ‘The Twilight Zone’
