Become Robin Swicord and write and direct plays and films, such as Little Women and two forthcoming projects related to the works of Jane Austen.

Ms. Swicord began writing and making short films when she was at Florida State University, studying English literature and Theater.

The book on which Swicord’s next movie is based, The Jane Austen Book Club, by Karen Joy Fowler, is a pretty good read, too. Who knows how the movie will turn out, but the cast looks good.
