About Ed Horowitz

Writing a play crop

Hey there,

I’ve been a working WGA screenwriter for over 25-years.  I have written major studio movies (On Deadly Ground, Exit Wounds and K9-PI), independent films (Shark in a Bottle), episodic one-hour television (La Femme Nikita), and five one-hour television pilots for Fox, TNT, ABC Family, Lifetime and CBS. (To check out my full writing resume, click here.)

I’ve also written one full-length musical. two full length plays and 50+ produced short plays.  I have a BA in English from UC Berkeley and an MFA in Playwriting from UCLA.  I have taught writing at UCLA School of TFT, UCLA’s Professional Program, UCLA’s Extension Writer’s Program; at the New York Film Academy; and privately.  I also work as a script consultant for producers, directors writers, filmmakers and documentarians.

Screenwriting is a subjective matter.  There is no right or wrong.  There is only the writer’s impulses and his or her creative sensibilities.  I strive to create a free-flowing dialogue in which ideas are expressed, examined, deconstructed and understood in respectful and encouraging environment.  I want you to learn through doing.  It’s through your writing, interaction with other writers and honest analysis of your work that you will discover your talent and grow.

Thanks for stopping by,
