Our mission is simple: help writers tell their stories brilliantly. The ISA was founded by independent filmmakers who understand that there are many different roads to success. We believe that everyone, from all walks of life, have stories to tell, each with a unique perspective and style. Our goal is to help you grow as a storyteller by honing your individual talent, sharpening your distinct voice, then guiding you to break through. From working writers, hobbyists and enthusiasts alike, we want to inspire you to believe in yourself and encourage you to become the most authentic storyteller you can be.

Our focus starts with expert advice, mentors, classes, contests, feedback and more to help you develop and build up your profile. Then we give you the tools to showcase your accomplishments and get the attention of producers, directors, agents and other industry pros looking to option work. There are no limits to what you can accomplish with the ISA. Keep writing, growing and using every tool we have to offer. You'll find your unique path to success, and we'll help you get there.
