How would you describe your current knowledge and skills (screenwriting, acting, or other)? [We read all responses. Please put a little effort into this form. You're a writer, right?]

While new to screenplay writing, I am very familiar with the writing process. I taught middle school Reading and English for seven years. All I needed was an idea and knowledge of the proper script format and terminology... and... ta-duh... I was ready to go.

Which genres are you particularly interested in? (e.g. comedy, drama, science fiction, etc.)

Thriller, action, horror, historical fiction, drama.

What are a few of your favorite movies, TV shows, books, or other inspirations? (List at least ONE by name.)

Fight Club (m), Gladiator (m), Conan the Barbarian (m), Dexter (tv), Shogun (b, tv), Hunchback of Notre Dame (b, m), A Tale of Two Cities (b, tv- BBC), Seven (m), Dredd (2012 m), Bram Stroker's Dracula (m), Ravenous (m), I, Claudius (tv, b), The Watchmen (m, graphic novel)

Do you hope to have any of your material read or critiqued by the group?

Yes. I have one completed, copyrighted action/thriller, Severe. I am currently working on the sequel, Severe Damage, and have outlined the prequel, Severe Beginnings.

Why are you interested in joining this screenwriting group? What are you hoping for?

I want to share experiences of scriptwriting with fellow writers, pick up a few writing tips, and learn how to market my screenplays to the most appropriate movie producers who can make my pages come to life.

Introduction

I recently moved to the Atlanta, GA, metro area (Decatur) from my hometown, Philadelphia, PA. I have discovered my interest and knack for writing only perhaps a year and a half ago.
