The Screenwriters' Group for Raleigh, NC
NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS
From September 4, 2023:
Hi Screenline Friends,
We are back to meeting in person again, but we are shifting the schedule for September to avoid Yom Kippur. So we will meet on Wednesday, September 27, and with the change in day, we have an opportunity for our sweet tooths to check out another location - Two Roosters Ice Cream off Lake Boone Trail. It's not far from our previous locations (Starbucks and Panera Bread), but hopefully you should not get lost.
In local screenwriting news, Beyond: The Cary Film Festival is coming up on September 21-24. The schedule for the festival has been posted, and it looks like there are a few free seminars of interest for screenwriters as well as a few screenwriter classes which require tickets. Also on Saturday, there is a table read of the Festival Grand Jury Award winner of the Screenplay competition. Plus there are numerous screenings of movies, documentaries, and shorts which you might want to check out. We've had many Screenliners attend this festival in the past, and it has been a good experience for those who attended.
For those who like podcasts, fellow Screenliner and Zoom Meeting owner, Calvin Hall, has one that he wanted to share with everyone:
One of the many podcasts I listen to is Hollywood & Levine, hosted by Ken Levine, who used to write for The Jeffersons, M*A*S*H, Cheers, Frasier, among other shows. Itís one that some of you might enjoy. Itís a weekly show that generally tends to be no more than 30 minutes.
Hereís the description from Apple Podcasts:
Hollywood & Levine looks at the world of entertainment, pop culture, screenwriting, and life, and takes none of it seriously. The point is to make you laugh, although useful information might accidentally slip through. Hosted by Emmy-winning writer/baseball announcer/talk show host, Ken Levine, Hollywood & Levine will feature commentary, war stories on Kenís career (MASH, Cheers, Frasier, Simpsons), interviews, writing advice, movie reviews, snarky award show recaps, tall tales from his baseball and radio career, segments from old broadcasts, improv sketches, answering listener questions, and more. Itís a fun, fast-paced hour of humor, nonsense, and God knows what.

Hope you find it enjoyable.
