Meetup Message from: Lee Horvitz, Member of The New Orleans Screenwriters Group


Meet-Up Organizers: I wanted you to know about this course. Jeff or Susie (the two of you I know; Astride, I think we have met), would you pass this on to the members? If I just post people think it's a one night event. Confused some folks last time. Besides being quite good, most affordable. Thank you, Lee Horvitz


“I'm now much better equipped to put pen to page thanks to Lee’s class. In just five classes, he covered just about everything." DaVida Smith, former screenplay reader for Halle Berry and Idris Elba.
“This man knows what he’s talking about.” Helen Krieger, producer/writer of the award winning feature, “Flood Street.”
“I really enjoyed this class.” Elizabeth Ackal, screenwriting beginner.

DESCRIPTION: This course is particularly for people interested in writing a commercial film, but those penning Indies will benefit, as well. Students will get an introduction to the elements and steps that go into creating a screenplay, from Casablanca to Lethal Weapon to BarberShop. See schedule below for details.

BUSINESS: Classes will meet at the New Orleans Healing Center, 2372 St. Claude Ave., from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. The cost is $75, which must be paid in full before or at the first meeting. Credit cards and PayPal accepted. Classes may be audio recorded. TO SIGN UP: Email me (Lee Horvitz) at [address removed] or call 504.994.4720.

QUALIFICATIONS: A produced playwright and sold screenwriter, I began adult life as an actor. A 25-year detour from drama took me into teaching philosophy. In year 2001, I left academia to write, especially for screen and stage. That change also began an intensive study of dramatic writing. For more on me, visit
