Writer’s Night: Act One kicks off our 2018 Schedule!

You’ve fleshed out a story, created a world, outlined, fretted, written, edited, edited some more, worried, and spent hour upon hour confusing friends and family by talking to yourself about your project when you thought they weren’t listening. Now you’ve developed feelings about it. You need to talk it out with someone who understands. Someone who gets you. Someone like you. Someone with thoughts and ideas about the craft of writing, about your writing, about any writing!

Your opportunity has arrived! Come and spend some real-world time (in a bookstore no less!) with writers, form new connections, chat with our featured authors, sit in on an informal conversation about writing Act One! Find your inspiration and inspire others! Join us! We’ll bring the food and drinks!

In separate sessions, screenwriter Mike Buchanan, and producer Mickey Dunbrow, will conduct workshops on the craft, offer a presentation on current industry expectations and methods to improve your script, and answer any questions you may have. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to improve your writing and your script, and further your understanding of a rising industry in Georgia.

This program is free and open to the public. No reservation or ticket is required.
