What We Do

Our Purpose is to find new voices in film and theater, embrace and strengthen their unique perspectives, and highlight the talent in the community by producing original work.

Our Mission is to provide a comfortable and safe haven for writers of all ages and skill levels to workshop their scripts with the assistance of peers.

​Our Objective is to give writers the opportunity to hear their work read aloud and assist them in sharpening their storytelling through useful feedback. We also strive to give actors a chance to practice reading or voice acting through the script table reads.

Our Hope is that through this process we can develop relationships with writers and find pieces to nurture into production.

Our View is that Just Write! Lakeland is an organization that does not tolerate racism, hate, or violence of any kind. We strive for inclusiveness, diversity, acceptance and tolerance, and we work hard to support each other in these efforts.  


Each Week

We read a play or screenplay in its entirety regardless of length so that the writer may get a better understanding of who their characters are, what they sound like and whether or not the plot/story work.

We provide feedback through a critique session thereby providing the writer with different perspectives on what does and does not work in their piece.

We Reserve the Right to:

Decline any script for any reason.

Decide which subjects or ideas to approach and produce.

Decide which pieces to read on a weekly basis.


If you are interested in having your work read at a weekly meeting, please see the SUBMISSIONS tab for guidelines and join us Monday night.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: ​
