National Screenwriters Day

National Screenwriters Day

The screenwriter creates the bridge between a story idea from a book or retelling of real events.

Spend some time admiring those behind the stories on National Screenwriters Day!

Since the dawn of movies, screen writers have existed almost continuously. Georges Melies was the first screenwriter to be acknowledged. He wrote the 1902 movie, A Trip to the Moon. Screenwriters have worked their creative magic ever since to create a foundation for movies, television shows, and other media.

These screenwriters are also known as screenwriters. They use their writing skills and imagination to help readers understand and create the emotions and setting for a story. In order to make a television or film appealing to viewers, screenwriters collaborate with producers and directors.

ScreenwritingU established the first National Screenwriters Day in 2016 to recognize the genius and talent of screenwriters. National Screenwriters Day is an annual celebration that honors those who make the screen stories come to life.

Participate in National Screenwriters Day celebrations and show appreciation by sharing some great ideas. Enjoy the day in these fun ways:

National Screenwriters Day is a great time to encourage budding screenwriters and give them encouragement! Send a note of encouragement to a budding screenwriter, or donate to a scholarship fund to help them pay for college.

The best way to show appreciation for screenwriting is to watch the finished product. It would be wonderful to select films that have been awarded for screenwriting excellence, such as the Academy Award and Golden Globe Awards for Best Original Screenplay.

You might enjoy these films by Oscar-winning screenwriters.

National Screenwriters Day is a day for those who love all things film. They can host a party with their neighbors, friends and family to celebrate. Invite your friends to join you for an evening of fun and dress up as your favorite movie or film character.

You can provide snacks and other goodies themed to some of the most iconic silver screen movies as part of the National Screenwriters Day celebration. Popcorn, red licorice and nachos are all classic movie-going snacks. You can also make cookies in the form of Oscar statues or golden stars.

Reading and learning about the top screenwriters is a great way to show your appreciation for National Screenwriters Day. Tales from the Script is a great place to start, featuring 50 stories from different screenwriters.

You might also want to read these biographies and memoirs about screenwriters.
