Welcome to the San Antonio Screenwriters Guild!

Our meeting format has changed

  Since 2011, SASWG has had many discussion topics over the years, but talking can only get us so far. We all need feedback, and, occasionally, also a little push to get words written and put them out in the world. With that in mind ...
    Each month, we focus on our own writing. Members should bring 5-10 pages of a script they'd like to share. (You don't need to ask in advance.) Just bring your work, and we will do an impromptu table read followed by suggestions/comments. The group will get through as many as we can at each session. If you don't have pages to bring, just come to offer your input, but we hope our members will get in the habit of bringing something to each meeting.
  We've seen this work well in another group, and we are excited to start it here!

      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.
