From August 9th:

Hi Screenline Friends,

We have a meeting coming up on Monday, August 14.  Usual time and place, 7-9 pm at Starbucks on Lake Boone Trail in Raleigh.  From the I-440 Beltline, take Exit 5.  At the bottom of the exit ramps from either direction, turn right.  Starbucks is in the Lake Boone Shopping Center just outside (west of) I-440. Pass by the gas station and Chick-fil-A, turning right into the shopping center between Chick-fil-A and Starbucks.

Here's a map for reference.

Please bring in your work to be read and critiqued.  We can get through about 10 to 15 pages of a work in progress during a regular meeting and still allow time for up to 3 works to be evaluated.  You should plan to bring in ten copies of anything you have for reading, so that either everyone has a copy of they can be shared 2-on-1.  For meeting purposes, double sided copies are acceptable.


The date has been set for September 25.  Check this website for any last minute updates.


There are no screenwriting or screenwriting-related classes scheduled for Fall 2017.  We will try to offer the classes in the Spring 2018 term.
Stay tuned to this Screenline web site for future developments.


“Dunkirk” is, as I anticipated, a fine film; it may be among the last great World War II epics.  The film is a skillful blending of three story lines which overlap, but each takes place over a vastly different time line (one week, one day, and one hour).  Special effects are great, and heighten the constant tension of the story.  There’s neither fluff nor comic relief in the film; there’s no room for either.  It’s pretty much constant action, as noted above, from three viewpoints.  Highly recommended.

This is a short newsletter.  If you have news or information you’d like to share, send it to me at and I will get it posted to the web site. 

For now, that’s a wrap; see you at Screenline!


Next Meeting

Our next meeting will be on Monday, September 25, 2017 at 7:00 pm at Starbucks at Lake Boone Trail.
