Sometimes the hardest part of writing is finding time to write. So step away from the daily grind and devote a few quality hours to your writing — with a few close friends. At the NwSG Writer-In, you’ll spend a portion of your time writing without interruption, and a portion of your time bouncing ideas off other screenwriters. The group decides how much time to spend on each. And, if you just want to use a room full of writers to keep you focused on the page, you’re welcome to do that, too.
