    May 19: Open Readings

    Bring 6 pages, double-spaced, preferably at least 6 copies to share with others for written feedback.

     

    If you want to take a chance fewer than three will show up, you can bring 10 pages double-spaced. But if more than three, no more than 6 pages will be read so we can have a good discussion with lots of supportive feedback.

     

    The usual time limit is 7 to 9 minutes.

     

    This will be an in-person meeting at FVCC Broussard Center Room 141.

    This summer, get ready for the AofF annual Writers Conference by polishing the synopsis and first 10 pages of your screenplay! Prep your work for review by conference presenter Suzanne Lyons, a Hollywood producer who options scripts and develops books for film or TV. If you register early for the 2022 conference, you may qualify for an in-person consult with Suzanne as a bonus!

     

    Even if you’re a novelist who wants to chat with Suzanne about your book’s potential for film or TV... or you can’t attend the 2022 conference but want to prep your work for submission elsewhere... or your script idea &/or first draft are works-in-progress... feel free to attend our First Thursday AofF Screenwriting sessions:

     

    Attend any or all sessions: April 28 = your logline and synopsis; May 26 = plot and structure; June 23 = characters and dialogue; July28 = your first 10 pages.
