ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) — Ashland-born Hollywood screenwriter Allison Anders has agreed to teach a screenwriting class at the Grayson Gallery and Art Center in her hometown.
The Independent reports (http://bit.ly/1cG0IcN ) Anders worked on the Emmy-nominated "Ring of Fire: The June Carter Cash Story" and is developing a new AMC-TV series called "Ashland." The series depicts a family fleeing Hollywood during the "red scare" and seeking refuge in Ashland, which is depicted as a tiny mining town.
Anders' weekend-long workshop will take place this spring. The goal of the class is to promote feminist art in Carter County.
The class is made possible thanks to a grant from the Kentucky Foundation for Women, which hopes to use the workshop as a way to transform the Grayson gallery into a regional hub for feminist artwork.
