Jill Chamberlain

Founding Director, The Screenplay Workshop
Jill Chamberlain is a sought-after script doctor, story consultant, and screenwriting coach. She is the Founding Director of The Screenplay Workshop, Austin's only educational institution dedicated solely to the craft of screenwriting (www.thescreenplayworkshop.org). She is also on the faculty of the graduate film program at Maryland Institute College of Art. Many of her students and clients have achieved success, having their screenplays optioned, sold, and made into award-winning feature films. She created the Nutshell Technique, a completely unique screenplay structuring method that she has taught to over a thousand screenwriters across the globe. Her book on it, The Nutshell Technique: Crack the Secret of Successful Screenwriting, comes out from the University of Texas Press in the spring. She'll be giving a demonstration of her method and signing her book at BookPeople on March 9, 2016.
