I appreciate the fact that Susannah Grant has a very good agent and obviously an even better publicist ("Her Type Is Strong, Not Silent," by Charlotte Innes, April 2), but I'd like to offer a free copy of her final draft to anyone who believes she wrote "Ever After." RICK PARKS Van Nuys The credits for "Ever After" read: "Screenplay by Susannah Grant and Andy Tennant & Rick Parks."

April 2, 2000 | CHARLOTTE INNES, Charlotte Innes is an occasional contributor to Calendar
For a woman who has written the screenplays for two major movies appearing within a month of each other, Susannah Grant sounds remarkably modest. "I've had good luck," says the young screenwriter of her current successes: the critically praised, blockbuster hit "Erin Brockovich," starring Julia Roberts, and the soon-to-be-released "28 Days" with Sandra Bullock.

The April 2 article by Charlotte Innes about Susannah Grant ("Her Type Is Strong, Not Silent") incorrectly stated that the motion picture academy's Nicholl Fellowship is given to "young, unpublished screenwriters."

Re "Joyful Writers Express Relief Over New Pact," May 5: Screenwriter Deborah Amelon states that "[Writers Guild of America President] John Wells is going to be a hero to writers for many years to come." Huh? What major concessions did the writers truly receive? Certainly not the money (Wells' annual salary alone is close to the $41 million of the writers' three-year deal). And respect?

I have to disagree with Paul Kolsby's review of David S. Cohen's book "Screen Plays: How 25 Scripts Made It to a Theater Near You -- for Better or Worse" ["Missing Most of the Story," April 3]. While Cohen's book many not have as many juicy and lurid details as Kolsby (and the rest of us) might like, the book does give a very good look at the infamous "development" process. Most books on screenwriting focus on the craft of writing, but Cohen shows us what happens to the script after it's written.

What did I do during the strike? Well, kids, I picketed Paramount. I marched and I chanted. "When I say 'union' you say power ... . " The iPhone rang. My agent. "Are you working on a spec script?" "Can't talk now." I hung up -- they'd released the dogs. Phil Alden Robinson cried out: "Run!" We sprinted past the Windsor gate, heard them snapping at our heels. One lunged for Phil, but I beat it back with my WGA placard. Another block down Melrose, and we took refuge in Lucy's El Adobe.
