The competition will allow groups of up to three people to pitch a

Screenwriters’ Lounge Inaugural Session

S_Lounge_MaratFrom Joseph Eusebio ’17:

Screenwriters’ Lounge will act as a weekly gathering place for all those interested in screenwriting, learning the form (we can teach you!), or simply hanging out. The current structure is loose, but it will always involve snacks, drinks, friends, and a cozy space.

If you have something you’re working on or something you’ve completed, please bring it! As a part of the newly established/funded Wesleyan Film Project, we can also help you produce your material, and will be planning film and screenwriting events throughout the year.

Mondays, 8-10pm, Shapiro Creative Writing Center

Come to the inaugural session for new friends and special snacks — Facebook event here.

Date: Monday, September 29 (and every Monday)
Time: 8-10 PM
Place: Shapiro Creative Writing Center
