Language of Materials
The TSA provides resource networking that seeks to answer questions concerning scripts, contacts, contests, and other questions relating to screenwriting.
Guest speakers have included academy award winners Delbert Mann and Tom Schulman; both who have strong ties to Nashville.
The screenwriting program at Tennessee State University inspired the formation of the screenwriting association , and the first issue of the Tennessee Screenwriting Association newsletter came out in September 1988 where then President Robyn Pepplatt expressed the hope “that through the TSA we can make Tennessee the “THIRD COAST” that it should be.”
The 2007 website for the TSA makes this statement:
“The Tennessee Screenwriting Association is a professionally oriented organization constantly striving to develop more avenues to help our members and community prepare for the real world of the entertainment business.” Current information as of 2007 on the TSA can be found at their website http://www.tennscreen.com/
