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.

JANUARY MEETING NOTICE
SAT, JAN 18, 12:30-2:30 p.m. Alamo City Studios, 1113 E. Houston St.
TOPIC: TOP SCREENWRITING ERRORS & READER TURNOFFS
Happy New Year! Let's get our writing for the year started on the right foot. Contest season is upon us, and readers have a sharp eye. What goofs are you making, perhaps without even knowing it?
Mark Zuniga is a seasoned contest reader (also one of our members) and he'll be on deck to discuss the script problems he sees most often. We'll also have a fun exercise.
We'll also have our monthly agenda of local film/member news; our optional 60-second pitch segment, snacks, and chat!
Come join us!

P.S. We'll be putting our 2020 Calendar up soon!
