Dr. Leslie Wilson teaches creative writing, screenwriting, and film studies at Pepperdine University’s Seaver College where she also directs the MFA Program in Writing for Screen and Television; co-directed the Institute for Entertainment, Media, and Culture; as well as produces a documentary web series on the art of screenwriting.

Published in such journals as Literature/Film Quarterly, the Quarterly Review of Film and Video, the Journal of Screenwriting, and the Journal of Adaptation in Film & Performance, her research examines the life and work of early Hollywood women screenwriters, including Frances Marion and Anita Loos. She currently has a book and documentary on the topic forthcoming: Women and Screenwriting.

A produced screenwriter herself, she co-founded AMI Films, a producer of many award-winning media projects. The shows she has worked on have earned such honors as film festival prizes, top Billboard rankings, the Silver Telly, and the Lumiere Award. Her consulting work has ranged from mentoring student MFA projects to working with well known Hollywood directors such as Garry Marshall.

A fiction writer with many one act plays produced at Pepperdine showcases, her love of the written word extends into her service as Editor-in-Chief and Executive Director of Americana - a publisher of poetry, fiction, drama, and American Studies scholarship through Press Americana, Review Americana, and Americana: The Journal of American Popular Culture, 1900 to present.

Dr. Wilson is a member of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, the Association of Writers & Writing Programs, the University Film and Video Association, as well as the Society for Cinema and Media Studies. She holds a Ph.D. in American Literature and Film Studies from Claremont Graduate University.
