****PLEASE NOTE: OUR SASWG MEETING HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR SAT., JUNE 22. 12:30-2:30 p.m. Alamo City Studios, 1113 E. Houston St.*****

Our topic will be ACTION GENRE and we'll look at trends, expectations, pacing -- everything action. Whether you're working on a full-on action script or just want to write an action scene, come join us and we'll discuss!

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

Please note: Our monthly meetings are *normally* on the 3rd Saturday of each month. We made a change in June due to Father's Day.

Also, the "writer sprint" is on hiatus.
