Screenwriters' Summit Toronto: Hollywood's Elite Teachers Come to Toronto!

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2011) - Hollywood's best teachers are packed for Toronto! They've sold over 2 million books and taught over 500,000 people in more than 40 countries. After sold-out events in Los Angeles and Tel Aviv, Syd Field, Linda Seger, Michael Hauge, and John Truby take the stage together for the first time in Toronto at the Screenwriters' Summit.

CNN called Syd Field, "The guru of all screenwriters," while Academy Award-winning Director Ron Howard said, "I've used Linda Seger's principles on all my films since Apollo 13." The AFI declares, "John Truby's course allows the writer to compete in the fiercely competitive world of Hollywood." And billion-dollar box office screenwriter Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean, Shrek), says of Michael Hauge: "Higher praise I cannot give."

Don't miss this rare opportunity to hear the world's most respected and distinctive voices on the art, craft and business of screenwriting.
