British Columbia's Community of Writers

Mon., Sept. 28, 7pm: FBCW Coffee Break with screenwriter Patty Sandoval Sralla: Talk about 'Save the Cat!' and your fiction project

  • 28 Sep 2020
  • 7:00 PM
  • Zoom



Join screenwriter Patty Sandoval Sralla in a free discussion group courtesy of the Federation of British Columbia Writers to talk about using the 'Save the Cat' system for programming your fiction project for success. Learn widely applicable techniques for writing plots readers will love, and ratcheting up tension in your story.  Get in on the discussion about 'Save the Cat,' the popular "beat" system used by thousands (and thousands) of writers. Sandoval recommends reading Save the Cat!: The Last Book on Screenwriting You'll Ever Need by Blake Snyder, or Save the Cat! Writes a Novel: The Last Book on Novel Writing You'll Ever Need by Jessica Brody. Both of these titles are available as ebooks on Kindle, and they can change the way you watch movies and read books, as well as how you write. 

A South Texas native, Patty Sandoval Sralla, 58, is a screenwriter/producer/director and a retired print journalist who lives in San Antonio, Texas, with her husband, son and three furry children. She organizes the San Antonio Screenwriters Guild and her screenplays have consistently placed in the top 20 percent of the Austin Film Festival Screenwriting Contest and PAGE International. She also sings in a rock band and is a five-year, post double-lung transplant recipient.

This free session from the Federation of British Columbia Writers is open to all. By registering, you will receive an email with a link to click on when it's time for the session. Questions? Email fbcw.islands@gmail.com
