I am happy and excited to announce the launch of  the Syd Field Academy of  Screenwriting!

For many years it was Syd’s dream that his Screenwriting Method be more accessible to writers around the globe.   Over the last several years he dedicated himself to developing a small group of highly skilled teachers in whom he invested the essential elements of his life’s work. Now his dream is a reality.

The Academy’s outstanding faculty is comprised of five Master Teachers who studied with Syd for many years and were exclusively selected by him to teach the Syd Field Screenwriting method to students worldwide.

In 2013 Syd created the initial curriculum for the Academy of Screenwriting, designed so that new and experienced storytellers would continue to have access to clear, effective, and inspiring writing tools. It is a tribute that those who worked closely with him are so committed to ensuring that the essential teachings of the “guru of screenwriting” continue to be available to all.

As the Academy expands its offerings, please look for the return of our Script Evaluation Service, Private Mentoring Sessions with a Certified Master Teacher, and a new blog – Talk Story.
