For both beginners and working screenwriters, Screenwriting Tribe Workshop Handbook provides a vast quantity of information to help writers polish their screenplays to the professional level. While working in the headquarters of a film studio, John saw how easily screenplays are dismissed because of formatting errors, badly written description, rambling dialogue, and other common script problems. One day, the studio president showed John a badly formatted script, and said, "Why should I spend time reading a script if the writer hasn't spent the time to polish it?" To help writers polish their scripts to be what is expected by managers, agents, studio readers, producers, directors, screenplay contests, writing labs, and mentorship and fellowship programs, John started the weekly workshop that he named Screenwriting Tribe. The membership quickly grew to include several hundred writers. Over the years, John compiled information helpful for those writing screenplays. At first, he was writing a booklet for his workshop, but it turned into the nearly 300-page first edition of Screenwriting Tribe Workshop Handbook with cover dimensions of 6x7. The first edition was picked up as a text by college and university film schools. This second edition is 582 pages with cover dimensions of 7x10. In addition to the Screenwriting Tribe workshop, John helps directors and producers polish scripts to get them ready for sale and/or production.
