She is a former volunteer AFI Alumni reader and WGAw online mentor, has appeared as a speaker at AMPAS, USC, and Film Arts Foundation, is a former University of Utah and New York Film Academy instructor, is the author of The New Screenwriter's Survival Guide, and is the founder of two international online screenwriting workshops including the semi-notorious 5150.
In addition to screenwriting, Max is a published author, journalist, short fiction writer, essayist, humorist, and produced playwright & radio writer.
Cris provides integral support in AFW classes and in the 5150 Workshop. (Without Cris, TheAFW – and Max – would probably both collapse under the workload.)
Cris believes it is an honor to work with Max and everyone in the AFW & 5150 family. We believe it is an honor to have Cris with us.
