Ms. Bostrom has been teaching at CCSF since 2001.

Ms. Bostrom's goals for her students are to honor the stories they carry, acquire creative tools to write their stories into screenplays, and produce their screenplays into films.

Denise has written documentaries for PBS and HBO, as well as corporate and educational films and web casts for over 20 years, garnering awards from major festivals (American Film Festival, Women in the Director’s Chair, Nyons, and Toronto, Berlin and New York Film Festivals) and industry awards (Joey, Golden Cine).

She’s worked on feature films as a script-doctor and script supervisor with renowned directors including Chris Columbus, Wes Craven, John Korty, George Lucas and Wayne Wang.

She produces fund-raising films and events for national nonprofits, and teaches screenwriting at City College of San Francisco, the University Project at San Quentin State Prison, and Chung-Ang University in Seoul.

Her essays have been published in Salon, San Francisco Chronicle, CineSource Magazine and the Huffington Post. She earned her BA at Bennington College, and MFA at New College where she developed her debut novel, Perfect.

She lives in the East Bay with her husband and cat, and enjoys catching her sons’ indie band, Man in Space, when they tour the West Coast.
