Screenwriting Tribe

Santa Monica, CA

Screenwriting Tribe

Screenwriting Tribe is a workshop consisting of screenwriters helping each other to polish their scripts. 


We workshop feature film, short film, episodic series, anthology series, limited/mini series, and serial series scripts.


We also workshop single-cam (non-audience) sit-com scripts (such as Modern Family, Black-ish, Jane the Virgin, and American Housewife).


We do not workshop multi-cam (studio audience) sit-com scripts.


We do not workshop musicals.


We do not workshop scripts rated NC-17 or X.


Screenwriting Tribe workshop is held Sundays from 6 P.M. to 8:15-ish P.M. Sometimes, we also have workshops on Sundays from 9A.M. to 11:15-ish A.M.


Before the pandemic, we met in person, in a performance space in Santa Monica. And in the morning at a closed bookstore on La Cienega.


Since the pandemic, we have been conducting the workshop on Zoom, which has brought in people from other parts of the globe.


During each workshop, we read up to 12 standard formatted pages from 4 scripts written by 4 writers who are in attendance at the workshop. 


Up to 17 people can participate in the workshop by RSVPing to the MeetUp page. 


The first four writers who RSVP and write the word "pages" as a comment, get to have their pages read. 


Each of the 4 writers introduces their script, usually telling us a logline. Then, assigning roles to the readers, and assigning one person to be the narrator, which involves reading the scene headings and description.


We read the pages read out loud. Followed by verbal feedback. 


Then, we go to the next set of 12 pages. 


The writer whose pages are being read is to remain silent during the read, and during the feedback. They listen and take notes. They are not to be defensive, or to answer questions. Any questions they might receive during feedback should be considered hypothetical. 


Writers can exchange contact information to discuss their scripts with each other, or to read each other's scripts. 


Before signing up to bring in script pages to be workshopped, writers:


1) Must attend at least 3 meetings to observe how the workshop functions. AND...


2) OWN the three books:

"Screenwriting Tribe: Workshop Handbook" - by Daniel "John" Carey

"The Screenwriter's Bible" - by David Trottier

and "Dr. Format Tells All" - by David Trottier

To workshop pages, you need to show that you own the books. 

If you are writing for TV, please study at least 3 books about TV writing.


To avoid spending the meeting time having the members repeatedly pointing out the same formatting errors to each writer, those workshopping pages should study the books.


If you do not want to do the homework, then Screenwriting Tribe is not for you.  


Script pages presented at Tribe need to be in 12 point courier type face with correct margins. If they aren't, we will not read them. Most of the writers use Final Draft screenwriting software. 


It is understandable that script pages brought to the workshop will not be flawless, and are works in progress needing to be polished. However, writers shouldn't solely rely on Tribe to polish their scripts. They should do their homework, including by reading the screenwriting books on the list of suggested books, reading screenwriting articles, watching YouTube videos about screenwriting, and taking other steps to learn the craft of screenwriting.


Writers should do the best they can with their scripts, before workshopping them, and show improvement with each set of pages.


Tribe is specifically meant for writers to polish their scripts so the scripts will be presentable to agents, managers, directors, studio readers, producers, development executives, financiers, actors, screenwriting contests, and fellowship programs. 


Trying to make it as a screenwriter can be quite a game. Screenplays are often dismissed because they are sent out before the scripts were polished.


Taking your script through Tribe workshop to help polish it is one way to help prevent your script from being dismissed.


After you have workshopped every page, have the script edited. A couple of members of Tribe are screenplay editors. 


After having the script edited, send that script to at least one professional script coverage service. See the "coverage" chapter in the Screenwriting Tribe book for more information. 


Only after taking every page of the script through the workshop, and having it edited and sent out for coverage, consider submitting the script to agents, managers, fellowship programs, mentorship programs, screenplay competitions, and labs. 


The two-hour workshop is a minimum of $7 per person to try to cover the various expenses associated with running the workshop. It's not meant to be a money-making venture.


You will not learn everything that you need to learn about screenwriting by attending a workshop.


To improve your skills in the craft, do homework. 


Check the screenwriting books sections in your local library and bookstore. Also, study books including "What Happens Next: A History of American Screenwriting," "In the Blink of an Eye: A Perspective on Film Editing." Read a book or three about the history of film. Read "The Hero with a Thousand Faces," "The Power of Myth," "The Writer's Journey," "Man and His Symbols," "The Emotional Craft of Fiction," and "The Art of Dramatic Writing." 


Know that there are thousands of people trying to get their screenplays produced. Make sure your scripts are sharp and commercial enough to compete i in the marketplace.

Screenwriters of Hollywood

Studio City, CA

Screenwriters of Hollywood

Welcome to the Screenwriters of Hollywood. Our group is focused on cold reads and critique for Screenwriters and offering experience for actors of all genres.


We are a diverse group of writers, actors, directors and producers who meet to read scripts, get honest feedback, and improve our craft. We learn to be good collaborators. We invite other working professionals to visit and share their expertise and path. We support each other's projects by attending premieres, readings, and events together.


Meetings:

Meetings are every Monday night from 7-9pm PDT. All meetings are currently virtual via Zoom. We go through 3 scripts a week, each writer is given 40 minutes. The recommendation is 10-15 pages followed by feedback. 


Membership:

We have put together some questions to get to know those applying to join us. Please be thorough with your answers and if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact the organizers here on MeetUp or on our Facebook Group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/566139007196355


Scripts:

New members must attend two meetups before bringing a script to the group. No first drafts, and before your first script is read it must be submitted to one of the organizers. If you are not sure about script format, if you are writing in English and it is not your first language, or if you think you need a copy editor (that's a person who looks for typos, misspellings, and other grammatical errors), have one of the group members take a look before you ask for a table read. You want us to concentrate on dialogue, character and plot, and not trip over format, spelling and grammar so we are happy to help.


Notes:

After each script reading, we take turns giving notes. The writer only listens. When it is your turn to give notes, speak about what worked and/or what didn't work for you as an knowledgeable audience member. Pitching brief ideas or jokes is okay. We are not here to re-write, only offer feedback. We are here to get the best stories written. Each story is unique, each screenplay is unique, each writer's process is unique and our group respects that.

 

Joining the Group:

After you have filled in our questionnaire we will follow-up and email all of the details about meetings and submitting to have your script read. We look forward to the opportunity to work together and build community as writers.

Shut Up & Write!® Los Angeles

Los Angeles, CA

Shut Up & Write!® Los Angeles

For more virtual events, join our Online Events Meetup here: https://www.meetup.com/shutupandwriteonlineevents/ 

Shut Up & Write!® is more than a movement, more than a good idea. We’re a method of writing that delivers. As an international organization, we are thousands of writers in a worldwide community, but most importantly, we are writers who write together in a local cafe. Join us.

We have events every week, all over. Sometimes we talk after. Whatever you’re writing, whatever form it takes, wherever you are in your process, you won’t be the only one.

And if you need help with your writing, we offer that too.

Want to know more? Check us out: www.shutupwrite.com. Or get in touch: questions@shutupwrite.com.

Meetup Event Format

It is an empowering and rewarding experience to write an hour each week, at the same time and place. It serves as powerful support for building your daily writing discipline.

RSVP and please arrive 10–15 minutes early to get settled. At the Meetup our Organizer will lead introductions and then everyone will sit down and write.

Afterwards, feel free to get to know each other. Members often talk about their successes and challenges as writers. The Shut Up & Write!® format brings a social facet to a normally isolated craft.

Our Meetups are a safe space for writers to work on their craft. No one will read or critique your writing.

“Writing is the only thing that, when I do it, I don't feel I should be doing something else.“ - Gloria Steinem

This is your time to write.

Women Screenwriters Workshop

Los Angeles, CA

Women Screenwriters Workshop

We are a community of aspiring film and television screenwriters providing support and script feedback for writers who identify as female or nonbinary. Our members workshop their scripts with the goal of submitting their work to contests, fellowships, and writing labs throughout the year.


GENERAL INFO:

Script submissions open 30 DAYS PRIOR to each Meetup, and are open to all members who have RSVP'd for that event. Projects emailed to womenwritersLA@gmail.com are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis for each workshop. Once your project has been confirmed, you are welcome to revise your draft up until the final deadline posted on the event page. Script spot availability is posted in the COMMENTS section of each event page. Scripts submitted by waitlisted writers may be accepted as alternates.


Workshops are typically posted 6 weeks prior to the event and we can accommodate 10-12 attendees per session. Once the 10-12 spots are full, all other RSVPs will be waitlisted. Update your Meetup RSVP status if you cannot attend or don't have time to read the scripts -- that's the only way a waitlisted writer can take your spot.


Be sure to check the event details for your specific workshop, as we have various types of critique sessions!


30 PAGE SCRIPT WORKSHOPS:

We critique up to 30 PAGES of FOUR SCRIPTS at this Meetup. Writers can submit a maximum of 30 script pages per workshop (any 30 pages of your draft, it does not have to be the first 30). If you are submitting pages beyond 1-30, you can include all preceding pages as reference. Extra pages are allowed if your script ends between page 30-37.


10 PAGE SCRIPT WORKSHOPS:

We critique the FIRST 10 PAGES of up to SIX SCRIPTS. Our focus here is on creating a solid hook and effective logline. Writers must also submit a 1 page "worksheet" detailing their script's genre and themes.


TV SERIES BIBLE WORKSHOPS:

We critique up to 25 PAGES of FOUR SERIES BIBLES at this Meetup. Writers should have a completed TV Pilot prior to crafting their series bible (however your pilot script does not need to be critiqued at a workshop). Writers must also submit a 1 page "worksheet" detailing their series genre and synopsis.


PEER REVIEW (SCRIPT SWAP) WORKSHOPS:

Writers who submit a completed film or TV script are matched with 1 or 2 fellow writers to trade FULL SCRIPTS for feedback. There is no Zoom meeting for this session -- the "event" date is your script submission deadline. After being matched, writers will have 8 days to read their partner's script(s) and email their feedback.


HOW OUR WORKSHOPS WORK:

1.) Each reader shares their top 3 to 5 comments on each script. 2.) The writer has an opportunity to ask questions. 3.) Open forum for logline discussion and more comments from readers (save any formatting comments for this round).


WHAT CAN I SUBMIT?

Feature film, short film, TV pilots, TV specs, limited series and webisodes are all accepted. Scripts should be saved as PDFs, formatted in industry standard, and include a title page. If you are submitting a TV SPEC (a series that is currently airing), please include your "previously on" synopsis on page ii after the title page. Neither of these go against your page count.

First time screenwriters are welcome -- our only requirement is a properly formatted script! See below for writer resources and sample scripts.


WHAT IF I WANT TO SUBMIT A LATER ACT?

No problem! It's recommended that you include all preceding pages as reference. For example, if you're submitting pages 61-90 for critique, your PDF should include pages 1-90. Attendees are not obligated to read more than 30 pages per writer, but it can be helpful to have the entire script. Just be sure to specify WHICH 30 pages you want critiqued.


WHAT IF MY SCRIPT ISN'T READY YET?

If you'd like to participate, but aren't ready to submit your own work, that's okay! All members are welcome at critiques. 


HOW DO I PREPARE SCRIPT FEEDBACK?:

There's no right or wrong way to give feedback, as long as it's done with respect. We want to hear your honest thoughts about what you've read! The best critiques are ACTIONABLE -- meaning the writer can make specific changes based on your notes. Here are some ideas to get started:

- which character resonated with you most... and why?

- did any scenes feel too short or too long? which ones?

- is there clear conflict between characters? could there be more?

- were any parts of the plot confusing or unbelievable? 

- did each character speak in a unique voice? could you tell them apart based on dialogue alone?

- did every scene move the story forward? if not, which could be cut or expanded?


GROUP TENETS:

Above all, we aim to provide a safe and respectful environment for group discussion. As a member of this group we ask that everyone abide by these tenets:

- We will provide thoughtful and respectful feedback for all writers who submit their work for critique.

- We will allow every participant the opportunity to speak and be heard.

- We will not single out any member(s) of our group based on religion, race, national origin, disability, age, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

- We will never share any member’s script pages or conceptual ideas without their explicit consent.

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.


CANCELLATION POLICY:

Attendance is mandatory for writers who submit their scripts for critique. If your pages have been distributed to the group and you cannot attend, you MUST contact the organizer immediately so that the group can be notified. All other attendees can cancel their RSVP prior to the Meetup. 

Please note that repeated NO-SHOWS (members who register for a Meetup, but do not attend and fail to cancel their RSVP) will be let go from the group. 


QUESTIONS? COMMENTS? SUGGESTIONS?

Your feedback is always welcomed. Please message or email the organizer directly.
