Hello everyone!! This is going to be a fun meetup!!
We'll read three projects. So bring 10 pages of your script - with enough copies so that each of your characters has enough copies plus one for the stage directions. It will be first come/ first serve- so the first people there with scripts will get their work read.
We will also have a 45 minute skype session with NYU Screenwriting professor Marilyn Horowitz!! She will talk about herself, and learn about our group, she'll talk about the upcoming extensive weekend workshop that she'll be having with us here in Baltimore!! And she'll also take some of your screenwriting questions!! Very fun night at the Baltimore Screenwriter's Coffee Club!!
