Our program has concluded, but be sure to check out the Summer of Screenwriting participant's page for full access to archived newsletters, screenwriting challenges, recorded live streams, and the resources on our screenwriting EXPLORE page. If you are 18 and under, you are also welcome to join our young screenwriters Facebook group. You can also check out this summer's Screenwriter Spotlight Series on our blog, where we posted interviews with and guest articles by screenwriters. You can also check out the winners of our Summer of Screenwriting National Youth Script contest.
“I have learned so much from this program! I learned how to format a screenplay with the correct headings and titles and I got to explore with loglines and learn about different types of films. Summer of Screenwriting was a really great experience! Thanks so much for this awesome opportunity!”
