The Academy of Film Writing [AFW] is an online writing school founded by author and screenwriter Max Adams to perpetuate excellence in film writing.

AFW began with six of Max’s master screenwriting classes:

•The Art of the Pitch
•Character Writing
•Dynamic Writing
•High Concept Writing
•Structural Writing
•Visual Writing

These are screenwriting classes created by Max when she figured out no one was telling her workshoppers and students specific things film writing they really needed to know — and built classes around subjects traditional screenwriting programs were missing.

Over time, three additional courses have been added:

•Dialogue Writing
•The First 30 Pages
•The Sex Scene

AFW continues to evolve. The course roster for upcoming classes is :::here:::


Max also teaches beginning & master screenwriting courses online at Gotham Writers and is an adjunct instructor teaching University of Utah online Film 3905 Special Topics courses in Film & Media Arts.
