Wild River Review, in its ninth year of internationally acclaimed print and online publishing, and with the “river” as a metaphor for the conduit of our creative forces and wellspring of our collective character, encourages you to participate in Character Day.
On March 20, 2014, teachers, students, and people from around the world will watch The Science of Character. The 8-minute film – made by award-winning film director Tiffany Shlain – and the live Question & Answer session that follows, will not only help you learn what character strengths you have, but how you can use those strengths to achieve a happy and meaningful life.
At Wild River Review, we believe creativity offers the richest expression of our character, a clear route to giving birth to something beautiful from our particular circumstances. Without expression and a portal to connect our creations, our rivers dry up. So sign up to watch The Science of Character today, and learn how you can keep the river flowing.

and people around the world to participate in

About the Film (trailer above): The Science of Character is a new #CloudFilm (a film made collaboratively with people all over the world) by award-winning filmmaker Tiffany Shlain. This 8-minute film explores new research in character development and asks the world, “how do you want to be,” and “what are your strengths, and how can you use them more in your work, school, home, or community?”
About #CharacterDay: On March 20, we are inviting schools, classrooms and nonprofit leaders around the world to screen complimentary (yes, free) tailor-made versions of The Science of Character on the same day (#CharacterDay). We will happily make a tailored version of the film for you, with your school or organization’s logo at the end.
The interactive, participatory #CharacterDay premiere includes:
- Simultaneous screenings in thousands of places around the globe
- Global online Q&As throughout the day (every hour there will be a different host) about character development from all different perspectives
- Complimentary online curriculum and educational resources
- A resource guide that identifies apps, games, and other media to further explore your character strengths (created by commonsensemedia.org)
Emily Anne Lucarelli, the eldest of three, has been helping create stories since she was a little girl. At the age of fourteen, she learned she could make a living out of such a hobby, and began to work for her high school literary magazine, eventually becoming co-editor. Today, she is the editor of Venture, Rider University’s literary magazine, where she is (almost finished) studying English with a concentration in writing and minoring in Journalism and American Studies. After college, she is going to see the world–its people, its land, its culture–and will make sure she has the luxury of coming home to an apartment in the city, where the walls shall be covered from floor to ceiling with books.
