SAT, SEP 21, 12:30-2:30 p.m. Alamo City Studios, 1113 E. Houston St.

Our topic will be scripts for the COMING-OF- AGE GENRE. Sub-topics might be teen rebellion; school issues; first experiences with love, sex, or death; and it relates to more universal questions -- Who am I? What do I want? We'll look at script examples, tips, and pitfalls in writing in this genre. 

BONUS: Award-winning screenwriter Laurie Lamson, author of the book, NOW WRITE! Screenwriting, will offer her insights on writing the coming-of-age script.

We'll also continue our 60-second pitch exercise. Attendees can pitch their story to the group for one minute, and get feedback. It's a great way to sharpen your networking skills, as well as focus your script.

Please note: Our monthly meetings are on the 3rd Saturday of each month. 


Our mission is to enable local screenwriters to create production-ready screenplays and teleplays that are of the highest quality. We are not affiliated with the WGA.​ (We like them, we're just not affiliated.) Anyone with an interest is welcome to join us! Learning basic knowledge of the craft and continually improving your skills is encouraged. We focus our free workshops on both basic and advanced level skills. We expect members to attend, participate in the activities and give to others, as much as they receive.  We are a collaborative group who share ideas freely, investigate to learn and take turns teaching each other what we know.
