Idea to Print. Story to Life.

AZ Yeamen


I am the Founder and Executive Director of Bridge 17 Scriptwriters' Studio; a 7,000 square foot independent content house for writers to work, learn, collaborate, promote, screen, and enjoy a like-minded tribe. I started my career like most writers - working an 8 to 5, taking care of home at night, then writing when inspiration hit me here and there. After a producer friend pitched an idea, I raised my hand to complete the project. Three days later the script was sold - I was bitten by the bug and turned pro. I found myself ignoring my day job to write. So eventually, I was let go and had to make my natural born passion and skill set work to pay bills. Talk about an inciting incident.

Nearly thirty scripts and years later selling every script I've ever written. I became the go-to for revisions, doctoring, whipping stories into shape, and pitch packages for TVOne, Aspire TV, Netflix, UMC Streaming, Bounce TV, and independent production companies.

Now, I am an evangelist for independent scriptwriters. All forms of media - not just the Hollywood Studios are grasping trying to find content. They're looking for your work, your ideas, but they want a professional to work. A writing professional understands marketability of scripts, the collaboration, the rewrites, brand management, concise storytelling - most importantly they know how to work with producers to execute changes in a script.

As most bios go, I can give you all my accolades - oh boy do I have many. However, the most important nugget about me is that I live off what I write and I have taught many others how to do the same.
