The Science Fiction Writers of Valence Street

Mar 2, 2017

A scientist and a poet might seem like an unlikely pair to write movies, but when Joyce Corrington and her late husband Bill began to collaborate, their stories took on three dimensions. Joyce and Bill’s screenwriting career transported them from New Orleans to LA and back again, into post-apocalyptic worlds on page and screen. In this edition of NOLA Life Stories, Joyce’s narrative begins during her time as an engineering student at Rice University in the 1950s.
