About Us

Every writer needs a home.

Phoenix Screenwriters Association (PSA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to educating the screenwriters of the future. Through our networking events, screenwriting courses and industry Q&As we bring Hollywood to Phoenix.

Phoenix Screenwriters Association started in 2009 as a small writers group on meetup (still active) and quickly grew into Arizona’s preeminent screenwriters’ organization. In 2016, we became a non-profit 501(c)(3) which has opened the door to allowing us to offer more for our members. With our dedicated Board of Directors and Officers, and a committed base of volunteers, we have a great group dedicated to bringing education to the Valley. Our goal is to educate our local screenwriters and filmmakers and help them achieve their dream.
