What we're about
We are a group of screenwriters at all levels of experience, meeting to improve our craft, build our careers and connect with fellow writers. In addition to our community meetups, our members get access to exclusive screenwriting classes, workshops and events, often at a fraction of the normal cost.
What Is The Goal Of This Group?
To help writers build their craft, discover their voices, find their community, and overcome obstacles like writer’s block, self doubt and procrastination. We seek to create an environment that is both challenging and inspiring, to bring out the best in our community and ourselves.
Who Should Join?
We organize meetup events and classes for members of all levels, from total beginners to emerging and professional writers.
What Kinds of Meetups Do You Offer?
Screenwriting Classes & Workshops, Meditative Writing, TV Writing, Film Breakdowns, 7 Act Structure Lectures, Formatting Seminars, Discussions, Excursions and Fun Events that bring screenwriters together.
What Is Your Philosophy?
Rather than imposing the same old formulas from the outside, we believe that the best writing develops organically, from initial idea, to character, to scene, to act to the movie you've always dreamed of making.
We seek to nurture a community that both fosters and challenges this idea, and to help writers to strike the perfect balance between the art and craft of writing: the demands of their creativity and the demands of the marketplace.
How Often Do You Meet?
We usually have at least one meetup per month and sometimes even more.
Who Is Jacob Krueger? And Why Did He Create This group?
Realizing that aspiring and emerging screenwriters often struggled to find community and good screenwriting resources, award-winning screenwriter Jacob Krueger founded this meetup group in an attempt to bring those writers together, and to give them a way to find the resources they needed, at prices they could afford.
Over his years in the entertainment industry, Jacob Krueger has worked with thousands of writers, from Academy and Tony Award Winners, to beginning writers picking up the pen for the first time. The founder of Jacob Krueger Studio (http://www.writeyourscreenplay.com/) in New York City, Jacob is an award winning screenwriter, playwright, producer and director.
"Jacob Krueger is a true collaborator, totally dedicated to the project, leaving his ego behind, but nevertheless demanding the highest standards because of his sharp dramatic sense and intuition."
--Claude Michel Schonberg
