Screenwriter and filmmaker Steven Arvanites was looking for support in NYC. He suspected other screenwriters were looking for the same thing. So, he formed NYCscreenwriter, a Manhattan-based network that, today, serves as home base for over 1,000 city scribes.

Go, Steven!

I have attended the workshops that NYCscreenwriter and Steven produces every month. I can honestly say that not only are the guest speakers informative, knowledgeable and helpful, they are also professionals and at the peak of their game. Steven is a great screenwriter, motivator and teacher. He is available to help with any writing blocks or fears that you may have.
Also, Steven helped me with my script when I was at a loss; it was so easy collaborating with him and the end result was amazing . It's the best money I ever spent on a "tutor".
...
Again, thanks a lot, Steven!
