Weekly Scene Analysis Meetup
<DUE TO CURRENT HEALTH GUIDELINES THIS GROUP HAS MOVED FULLY ONLINE>
Contact Wally: awallylane(at)gmail.com for more information.
Long-time Northwest Screenwriter Guild member and former board member Wally Lane has started a scene analysis group that meets weekly in Seattle. This is an inclusive group that welcomes writers at all stages in their writing careers.
Here are the details from Wally:
First and foremost, to assist fellow screenwriters hone the craft of writing scenes—both action and dialogue—that are cinematic, engaging and correctly formatted.
And thus help our screenplays make it to “the top of the Reader’s pile.”
How it works
- Sign up to bring scenes or a sequence (not exceeding 10 pages) from your screenplay.
- Together, we do a table read (aloud) of your material, then critique and offer suggestions.
This is a free event and it is open to all screenwriters… we welcome pros and tyros alike.
- A chance to hear portions of your work read (by real people, not the Final Draft robot).
- Receive suggestions to improve the material, point out errors and/or problem areas, and how to correct them.
6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

First Rule of the SSAG: Treat other screenwriters as you’d like to be treated.
Our mutual aim is to improve our skills (not hurt someone’s feelings).
We can be constructive and civil at the same time.
In other words, play nice and be friendly.
