Stanley Bronstein Interviews Lena Baisden-Tankut

LENA BAISDEN-TANKUT (Writer Of Alter Wiener’s Screenplay)

Lena is a graduate student at Portland State University finishing two masters degrees: one in writing and one in education. During her undergraduate studies, she focused on journalism and freelance writing. Her writing was published in newspapers and magazines including Mesa Legend Newspaper, College Times, Pathos Literary Magazine and The Stranger. She won the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Association Feature Writing award for one such article.

During her graduate studies, she’s been focused on developing her scriptwriting. Currently, she’s working with a producer to adapt the life story of one of our previous interviewees in this series, Alter Wiener. His story (and the script Lena’s working on) documents Alter Wiener’s survival of the WWII Holocaust and his having endured post-WWII struggles. Lena says she’s become very passionate about this project.
