The Screenwriters' Group for Raleigh, NC
NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS
From February 9th:
Hi Screenline Friends,
This news is late, I admit. Been having some computer issues that showed up when I was installing some new software, and I just got the computer back from Geek Squad after they straightened it out (I hope).
We have a meeting on Monday, February 10. Usual time and place, 7-9 pm at Starbucks Coffee, 3800 Lake Boone Trail in Raleigh. If you need directions, please you this link to find a map and driving directions.
Our next meeting is Monday, January 6. Usual time and place, 7-9 PM at Starbucks Coffee, 3800 lake Boone Trail in Raleigh. Starbucks is located in the Lake Boone Shopping Center, between Chick-fil-A and McDonalds; just take Exit 5 from the I-440 Beltline and turn right at the bottom of either exit ramp. Pass by the gas station and turn right into the shopping center immediately past Chick-fil-A. Here's a map for reference.
Our meetings mainly feature table readings of excerpts from works-in-progress by our members and guests; we find that around 10 to 20 pages is the ideal length for a meeting as this gives us time to get to about three pieces and critique them. Please bring eight to ten copies of your work, so that everyone at the table can either have their own copy to read from or can share two on one. For the purposes of our meetings, double-sided copies are perfectly acceptable; this might save you a little money.
During a two-hour meeting, we won’t have time to read and critique a full feature-length script; but if you have a feature you’d like to have read, we can set up a special weekend meeting for this purpose. Please don’t be afraid to ask about this.
Cary Film Festival from June 11-14. The Festival schedule is not yet posted, but they are still having a screenplay contest associated with the Festival. The winning screenwriter(s) will win VIP passes to the Festival and get to hear a table read of their screenplay, voiced by local actors on Saturday at the Festival.
Screenline writers are 2-for-2 in winning this competition - Tim McDevitt won it in 2018 and Jim and Teresa Courter captured the prize in 2019. Let's keep the tradition up and win the contest again this year.
The screenplay contest has a submission date of March 13, so you'll need to get writing.
SCREENLINE MARCH MEETING:We are all set to meet on Monday, March 9, at Starbucks. I will get a newsletter/notice out on a more timely basis next month, I promise!
That’s a wrap for now. See you at Screenline!
P.S. If you have news or information you’d like to share, send it to me at email@example.com and I will get it posted to the web site.
Our next meeting will be on Monday, March 9 at Starbucks of Lake Boone Trail.
