About

The first time I met a famous screenwriter, I didn't want a photo with him, I needed his advice. That was my first card of writing advice over four years ago. As more and more inspiring cards gathered on my desk, other writers requested a copy, leading to this website, with new cards posted frequently.

These WritingCards were graciously given while attending various screenwriting events:

Please share your card

It's easy to share. Please jot down your writing/showrunning/directing/producing advice and email the photo of your Card to writing@writingcards.com. More

If you would like to post on your social media:

  • Please handwrite your advice (3x5 card preferred)
  • Take an iPhone photo or scan
  • Post to your prefered social media with hashtag #writingcards
  • We will cross-post with your credits and socials so other writers can follow you
  • Update us with your preferred links: website, IMDB, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Pintrest, headshot
