Journey to Screenwriting
Jax added screenwriting to their writing when accepted into the 2020-2021 Writers Guild Foundation Veterans Writing Project. During the program Jax completed their first feature screenplay, Linking Turns. Through the valuable education and mentorship, they have multiple ideas in work, including two feature films, a short film, and TV pilot.
As an LGBTQ screenwriter, Jax focuses on increasing quality representation in all forms of media. All scripts include LGBTQ+ main characters with happy endings that will appeal to a mainstream audience.
Full scripts can be found on Coverfly or can be requested via email. Synopsis and writing samples will be added below as they are available.
