My name is Eboni Dunbar and I am a screenwriter from the California Bay Area. As a writer I tell stories about the ways people connect, hurt each other and build each other back up. My goal is to tell real stories (sometimes with unreal settings) that resonate with the audience and change the viewers mind even just a little bit. I want people to watch films based on my work and think about a different perspective, a different view. If I can make you say hmm then I’m doing my job.

I have an interest in helping young people engage with their education and using art/writing as a way to help them engage. I am deeply invested in individuals taking responsibility for their own development and helping them to find the resources that they need to advance themselves. I also am interested in representing queer/ethnic identity politics through my work and exploring them in literature and film.

This blog is a space to discuss my relationship between writing as a business, life as a writer, education, news and also occasionally just life. I hope that you as a reader will find this an interesting intellectual space as well as a place to have fun and learn new things.
