Catalyst Writers Group Logo - Semi Transparent Background

This exclusive writers group is made up of talented and experienced writers who are dedicated to helping each other grow creatively and take their skills and projects to the next level.

Sheryl Anderson, the talented showrunner of Sweet Magnolias (Netflix), is leading the Catalyst Writers Group, along with writer Anthony Epling (Suits, Beauty & the Beast) and a team of industry mentors she is gathering together to provide this new approach for writers to get high-quality feedback, recommendations, and input for their creative work.

Each participant gets to be part of a genre group – sitcoms, short films, feature films, novels, poetry, or whatever you're writing – so you know you’re working with other writers who are specifically focused on your genre.

Submit your pages to your fellow group members each month, let everyone know what kind of feedback you're looking for, and get the entire group’s input and recommendations. Through Catalyst, you stay accountable in your writing and get valuable feedback on your work.

And all the Catalyst participants will be mentored by professional writers and showrunners from the entertainment industry, so you're going to be guided by an expert in the genre you're working on!

Taking part in the Catalyst Writers Group is free of charge for Greenhouse members, although there are a few requirements that can be taken care of with just few easy clicks:

Writing is an extreme privilege but it’s also a gift. It’s a gift to yourself and it’s a gift of giving a story to someone.


    We send out updates on events as well as helpful resources and posts. Don't worry, we hate spam too and only send emails a few times a month.
