Harvey Ovshinsky
Marvin Shaouni

Poet James Stevenson once wrote that "Front yards are boring. Backyards tell stories." Harvey Ovshinsky is both an educator and a popular motivational speaker with a life-long passion for helping others find their own 'backyard' story.

Have you ever gone to the movies and said you could write a better script than that? The next round of Harvey’s monthly screenwriters support group, HOW TO WRITE YOUR FIRST MOVIE SCRIPT IN SIX MONTHS, begins in September.

The Detroit News describes Harvey as "one of the country's finest storytellers." His Movie-of-the-Week script, PJ and the Dragon, was represented by Creative Artists Agency (CAA) and optioned by Longbow Productions (A League of Their Own). The New York International Independent Film & Video Festival honored his latest screenplay, The Keyman.

Harvey Ovshinsky Presents Handouts include a script of The Keyman, a complete bibliography of screenwriting books, publications, and contests, plus information about helpful computer formatting software and the latest version of Harvey’s Ten Most Important First Rules of Storytelling.

Each group starts at 7:00 pm and ends at 10 pm. The cost for the six group sessions is $325. Enrollment is limited. Click here for more details
