Welcome to the San Antonio Screenwriters Guild!

      The San Antonio Screenwriters Guild or SASWG is a group of local screenwriters who are dedicated to helping each other become better storytellers in both film and TV. We are not affiliated with the WGA.  Through continued education, table readings of local scripts, knowledgeable feedback and brainstorming sessions we seek to improve our skills and master our craft.
