We have Re- Scheduled the Tale Writers Conference for
May 18 – May 21, 2017

The Tale Writers Screenwriting Conference has been re-scheduled from Oct 13-17, to May 18-21, 2017 in order for us to take advantage of opportunites not available now.

Santa Fe is home to a professional film industry rarely seen outside of LA or NYC. For your chance to convene in a top five tourist destination in the United States and learn from the talented writers working in the film industry, register to attend.

MISSION: It is the mission of the Conference to elevate the quality and marketability of both the writer and the writing for each attendee; to provide an occasion for personal growth within the Craft of Screenwriting while featuring the amazing depth of talent and opportunities in the New Mexico film business.

CONCEPT/THEME: The underlying theme is to express and experience the human continuity of storytelling from primordial hunters’ campfires to the leading edge technological applications that meet a basic human need for which we are hard-wired. The keynote address by a well-recognized local industry professional will be introduced by a griot (traditional African storyteller) performance, and the conference will wrap with a demonstration of the latest in new transmedia technology to which writers must adapt.
