How to Chat

ScriptChat was created for the purpose of bringing new and seasoned screenwriters together as we navigate the industry and learn how to write better screenplays. Our topic changes every week, so stop by often, but remember, we're a community, not competitors. Everyone has something to learn, so leave your ego behind... but bring your tequila.

note: even the NY Times agrees films and better served with a drink.

EURO chat 8pm GMT/BST 
USA chat 8pm EST/EDT (5pm PST/PDT)

At the designated time, go to one of the following sites: 

TCHAT INSTRUCTIONS (easiest platform to use)
1. Go to at the time of the chat.
2. In the upper right hand corner, click on "Sign In"

3. The site will then ask you to Authorize your Twitter account (you'll need to login to your Twitter account on the same browser). 
Click on "Authorize App"

4. You'll then be redirected to the TCHAT Scriptchat Chatroom, and you're good to go! The chatroom will automatically add the #scriptchat hashtag, so you don't have to worry about remembering to input it. 


1. After going to the TWUB site, scroll down the right sidebar to "MEMBERS" and click "JOIN THIS TWUB". 

2. LOG IN: If it tells you to LOG IN to join the TWUB, choose "Log in with Twitter," that way your tweets will also show up in your Twitter feed and be visibile for those NOT using TWUBS. 

If you log in via TWUBS and not via Twitter, you need to click the button below the large blue "SEND" button to tweet via your Twitter username. (note: It is critical to check this box, especially if you are the featured guest.)

NOTE: Make sure you add the #scriptchat hashtag to your tweet or other followers won't see your comments. But both the and TWUBS sites above AUTO ADDS the hashtag, making it the easiest way to participate in our chats.
We kick the chat off with the topic. Jump in, share and/or ask questions. Watch for your @ name so you can answer questions directed at you. But, most will post general questions or comments, so feel free to answer anything that pops up.
TIP: I typically have my TweetDeck open so I can see mentions as well as do the chat on It's not complicated... just sounds it.
