CONFERENCE CLASSES:  All participants must be registered to attend the Great American Screenwriting Conference. It is $25 to register for the conference, and it allows you access to all of the conference sessions on Friday and Saturday. More than 20 panels, workshops, and sessions with screenwriters discussing their craft, with advice and support from some of the most respected producers, agents, and studio executives in the business.


MASTER CLASSES:  Master Classes are half day (or evening) sessions with the best teachers in the business. Past instructors have included industry leaders such as Robert McKee (“Robert McKee’s Story Seminar”), Syd Field (“Screenplay”), Dr. Linda Seger (Author, “Making A Good Script Great”), Blake Snyder (“Save The Cat”), Michael Hauge (Author, “Writing Screenplays That Sell”) and our very favorite, Pilar Alessandra (“On The Page”).Taking a half-day workshop with one of these masters will help you to elevate your craft, and master your own story.


PITCHING, HOW DOES IT WORK?:  Before the event, you will receive an electronic copy of the Executive Directory, listing all of the companies who will be hearing pitches. When you review this information, you can target specific companies to pitch. On the Sunday of the event, you will have five minute, one-on-one meetings with the companies you have chosen. Pitch to approximately 120 Agents, Manager, and Production Companies. Event sells out each year.
