What we're about

Welcome to EAST VALLEY SCREENWRITERS

We are a group of "serious" and "dedicated" area screenwriters who believe that polishing a "good script", makes it a "great script."

Among the membership are: beginning writers, intermediate writers , local and national contest quarter-finalists, finalists and winners. By working together we can help each other.

Our members have received awards in the; Austin Film Festival, Los Angeles Cinefest, Nicholl Fellowships, BlueCat Screenplay Contest, Sundance Film Festival and numerous other contests.

It is advised to be familiar with these books: "The Screenwriter's Bible" by David Trottier, "Dr. Format Tells All" by David Trottier, and "Screenwriting Tribe" by Daniel John Carey.

If you are interested in improving your writing skills, this may be the group for you.

If any questions, please contact me. Thank you. Hope to see you soon.
