Max Timm is the Director of Community Outreach with the International Screenwriters’ Association, with over a decade of experience in developing material and writers’ careers. His focus with the ISA is to build a creative community and bring ISA writers closer to ISA Industry Professionals. Recently he has helped build a development program with the ISA, submitting writers’ projects on their behalf and helping them launch their careers – eight writers received options and representation in 2015-16 because of Max’s assistance and support. His Live Master Class in Los Angeles develops working writers and their material, and his online classes, titled The Craft Courses in Screenwriting, offer screenwriters outside the Los Angeles area to take part in professional full development and lessons. In order to connect with as many aspiring writers as possible, he created and launched the ISA’s popular Curious About Screenwriting podcast, as well as his solo podcast, The Craft.
A development consultant, manager, and screenwriting instructor, Max is a screenwriter and author himself. His debut novel, a young adult fantasy adventure titled The WishKeeper, about a teenage fairy with broken wings, won the young adult category of the 2015 Los Angeles Book Festival and released nationwide in the Summer of 2016. Max has also served as a part-time instructor at UCLA, will be a mentor in 2017 with the acclaimed Rocaberti Castle Writers Retreat, and travels nationally and internationally speaking at a multitude of industry events such as the Sundance Film Festival, Nashville Writers Conference, and even educating art program teachers through the LA Unified School District.
