Writer's Refuge

Whether you are actively writing, or one of those people who are always planning to start, one thing's for sure- you need a location. Can you write at home, work, or anywhere opportunity lends itself? Yes, but often those places are filled with distractions that strangle the imagination and breed procrastination. If you are looking for a serene location, with likeminded creatives, join Assistant Organizer Stephen Lombardo at the SJS monthly Writers Refuge at the McCowan Memorial Library from 6:45-8:30pm.

Craft Lecture: From Outline to Scenes

Please join us on Tuesday April 17th from 7-9pm at the McCowan Memorial Library in Pitman, NJ. From 7:00-7:30pm, you can network with your fellow screenwriters and filmmakers. Then at 7:30pm, the craft lecture will begin on From Outline to Scenes. After you have finished your outline, how do you decide which scenes really need to be in your film, and equally as important, which ones don't? While your blueprint may change, most writers benefit from fleshing out their outline and creating a scene list. There are many advantages to having a solid story structure in place, especially later at the rewrite stage. Join us and learn how to take your script from outline to scenes and the benefits of doing so. After the lecture there will be time for Q&A.
