September 21, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Hi all —
We hope you had a great summer! Here’s what’s happening next Saturday with the San Antonio Screenwriters Guild:
SEPTEMBER MEETING – SAT, SEP 21, 12:30-2:30 p.m.
Alamo City Studios, 1113 E. Houston St. San Antonio
Our topic this month will be SCREENWRITING FOR THE COMING-OF-AGE GENRE. These scripts can be both universal and intimate as they deal with issues of growing up. These issues might be teen rebellion, school, dysfunctional families, peer pressure, choices about the future, and first brush with love, sex, or death. It also covers universal questions, such as “Who am I?” and “Where am I going?” We’ll talk about script examples, expectations, tips, and pitfalls of 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 from the group. It’s a fun way to sharpen focus on your script — great for future marketing!
We hope to see you there!
Lise and Patty
