Superior Summer Screenwriting Colony

Dates: Lew is currently not hosting the colonies.

Join Lew Hunter and Pamela Hunter in the Victorian Capital of the Midwest. This Colony celebrates the roots of writers like Willa Cather and Mari Sandoz as we meet for two weeks in Superior, Nebraska, a postcard town of traditional Americana we like to refer to as "the middle of everywhere."

The schedule will immediately immerse you in the writing process where you will be encouraged to progress from story idea, to treatment, to step-outline and finally to complete the First Act of the Screenplay (30 pages).

Hunter HouseAt the conference site, your accomodations are truly "Victorian." You will be staying in one of two 19th Century Victorian homes, lovingly furnished and tastefully decorated by Pamela Hunter. Each room has individual desks, reading lamps, and grounded (3-prong) outlets for your laptop computer. Remember, these are 19th Century Victorian houses. If you have mobility problems, please discuss it with us. Sorry, we cannot guarantee privacy. Please remember to pack a robe or other cover-up. Let's keep our minds on our writing!

Every day will be filled with lecture, workshop and/or writing time. There are plenty of cozy and isolated places to concentrate on your writing assignments. As you will soon discover, writing is the priority, but taking the time to socialize and discuss writing issues with your fellow participants is also a vital part of the Colony experience.

Lew Hunter will lead the workshop and the lecture, and will facilitate the best writing by creating an atmosphere of constructive feedback for all participants.

This Superior Summer Screenwriting Colony fills rapidly and it is strongly suggested that you submit an application at your earliest opportunity to ensure acceptance and availability.

All skill-levels of writing experience are encouraged to apply and to participate. We can easily accommodate the most basic beginner to the most experienced professional. All writers will be respected, honored and supported through the writing process.
