The Scottsdale Screenwriting Conference, the Valley's premiere resource for educating, inspiring and connecting all screenwriters with "the biz" returns Saturday, Nov. 6, at the Gainey Suites Hotel, 7300 E. Gainey Suites Drive, Scottsdale. This intensive, information-packed popular conference is for aspiring writers as well as established screenwriters interested in either film or television.

The conference features Ken Rotcop, former creative head of four film studios (Embassy Pictures, Hanna-Barbera, Trans-World Productions and Cannon Films), winner of the Writer's Guild Award and the Neil Simon Award, founder of Pitchmart (as featured on Oprah) and author of the best-selling The Perfect Pitch.

Joining Rotcop will be Richard Walter, a celebrated storytelling guru, movie industry expert, novelist, screenwriter and longtime chairman and professor of UCLA's graduate program in screenwriting. Walter lectures throughout the world and is also the author of Essentials of Screenwriting: The Art, Craft and Business of Film and Television Writing.

Attendees who register by Sept. 30 are eligible for a discounted ticket price of $149 for the conference (includes lunch.) After that, tickets are $175 for the conference (includes lunch.) Seating is limited.
