The Academy of Film Writing [AFW] is an online writing school founded by author and award winning screenwriter Max Adams to support her students in their writing and career aspirations and goals.

AFW began with six of Max’s master screenwriting classes, including Visual and Dynamic Writing, created by Max to fill in the blanks she believed traditional screenwriting curriculums appeared to be missing, giving her students the tools they needed to succeed. Since then, Academy of Film Writing has expanded to include additional classes to further and advance Max’s students’ professional aspirations and careers. AFW continues to evolve. The current AFW 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.
