  • Nashville Screenwriters Conference

    Interested in launching your career as a screenwriter or finding creative inspiration?

    Donâ€TMt miss the 6th Annual NASHVILLE SCREENWRITERS CONFERENCE, taking place June 4-6, 2004 at the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University.

    The Nashville Screenwriters Conference celebrates its 6th year as a premier event in which participants can meet and learn from established writers, directors, producers, talent agents and film industry executives.

    Conference co-founders Karen Murphy (who produced â€A Mighty Windâ€, â€Best in Showâ€, â€This is Spinal Tap†and â€Drugstore Cowboyâ€) and Les Bohem (who wrote the Steven Spielberg Emmy-award-winning Sci-Fi channel hit â€Takenâ€, â€Twenty Bucks†and â€Danteâ€TMs Peakâ€) are bringing blockbuster writers, directors, producers and studio executives from Hollywood to Nashville.

    Participants this year include screenwriters Brian Helgeland (â€Mystic River, â€L.A. Confidentialâ€, â€Man on Fireâ€), John August (â€Big Fishâ€, â€Charlieâ€TMs Angels†and â€Goâ€), Anne Rapp (â€Dr. T & The Women†and â€Cookieâ€TMs Fortuneâ€) and writer-director John Lee Hancock (â€The Alamoâ€, â€The Rookie†and â€A Perfect Worldâ€), and the writers and producers of NBCâ€TMs â€Law and Order.â€

    In addition to panels on the process of screenwriting and getting that first break, this year's conference will feature a panel of writers and producers from the hit series â€Law and Orderâ€; a panel featuring writers working in the ever -growing field of animation; and a nuts and bolts, â€what do I do with the darned thing once I've written it†discussion with top industry professionals.

    I will be moderating a couple of panels at the conference (as well as running their first annual screenplay competition, the Showdown).
