What we're about

We are storytellers. A community of film and television screenwriters providing support and feedback for writers who identify as female. From outline to final act, we workshop our scripts with an emphasis on strong female narratives and the goal of submitting our projects to labs, contests, and festivals throughout the year.

We NEED more women writers represented on both the big and small screens. We NEED more female-centric stories. And this is how we do it -- by supporting each other throughout the creative process.

GENERAL INFO:

Submission deadlines are noted on each Meetup event. Scripts will be emailed to RSVPs prior to the Meetup and we do ask that you arrive having read all of them. If you'd like to participate, but aren't ready to submit your own work, that's ok, too! All members are welcome at critiques. Just make sure the organizer has your email.

OUTLINE WORKSHOPS:

20 pages max. This can be an outline, a beat sheet, a series bible -- whatever means you are using to outline the beats of your story. Also a great opportunity to get feedback on your logline.

SCRIPT WORKSHOPS:

Submit up to 35 script pages per session. Scripts should be formatted in industry standard with a title page and numbered script pages. Feel free to include a logline or brief synopsis on page ii (after your title page). If you are submitting a TV spec, please use page ii for your "previously on" synopsis. Neither of these count against your page count.

You are welcome to include previous acts as reference. For example, if you're submitting Act III, go ahead and include all the pages leading up to it. While attendees are not obligated to read more than 35 pages per writer, it can be helpful to have the entire script. Just be sure to specify WHICH 35 pages you want critiqued.

COPYRIGHT:

Our expectation is that all scripts shared within the group are the sole property of the person who wrote them. Scripts are not to be shared outside the group or distributed for any purpose other than critique sessions. Nonetheless, it is highly recommended that you register your work with the WGA or the US Copyright Office. Protecting your work is your responsibility.

CANCELLATIONS:

IF YOU CANNOT ATTEND, UPDATE YOUR RSVP STATUS. If your pages have already been emailed out to the group, you MUST contact the organizer so the group can be notified. We will not tolerate preparing feedback for no-shows (!) and emergencies aside, it may result in you being let go from the group.

Please message or email the organizer directly.

Script Outline Workshop

Tara Hill Clubhouse

**UPDATED[masked]** This month's workshop is devoted to outlines! Feature film, short film, television, mini series, web series... whatever format you're working on is welcome. You can submit an outline, a log line, a beat sheet, a series bible, or any combo thereof. Just keep it to 20 PAGES MAX. All materials (PDF format) are due **SUNDAY, APRIL 7TH at 3:00 PM** via email to [masked]. Pages will be distributed to RSVPs on April 7th. We do ask that everyone read the material prior to arriving so that we can dive right into feedback for each writer. We'll also spend a portion of the meeting discussing upcoming writing labs, contests, and fellowships that may be of interest to our members. PLEASE NOTE: this is not a class to learn screenwriting basics. Our goal during critique sessions is to focus on plot structure and character development. It is 100% okay if this is your first script... just be sure you've got a handle on standard screenplay format before jumping in. Need a sample outline?
