Creative Screenwriting Magazine & Screenwriting Expo Have Been Sold


LOS ANGELES - Inside Information Group has bought Creative Screenwriting Magazine and its properties including the Screenwriting Expo, the CS Weekly E-Zine.

Creative Screenwriting, a bi-monthly magazine, was founded by Erik Bauer in 1993, and the Screenwriting Expo was founded in 2002. The publication covers the business and craft of writing for feature films and television. It is the most widely read periodical for TV and feature film writers. The Screenwriting Expo is the largest conference and tradeshow for screenwriters in the world, with more than 4,000 attendees last year. Bauer is leaving Creative Screenwriting to produce television and feature films. He will stay on to guide his successor through the business transition.

Inside Information Group, Ltd., a privately-held corporation, previously published business news, ran conferences, and published professional books on hospital information technology from 1990 through 2004. It was founded in 1990 by Bill Donovan.

Before founding his company, Donovan earned a master’s degree in film production at the University of Southern California School of Cinema-Television.

“I WAS an aspiring screenwriter,” he said. "I needed help finding my way in the business, and didn’t know where to turn or what to do. I gave up in the late 1980s--in part because there was nothing like Creative Screenwriting.

“Erik Bauer and his team have created a wonderful set of resources for working and aspiring screenwriters. In Creative Screenwriting, screenwriters have an advocate, a source of advice, a network, and an annual meeting at which they can learn the craft and the business of writing and build their network.”

Donovan has worked as a news reporter and editor for daily newspapers, the Associated Press, and other business and professional publications. He also spent some years working in the U.S. Senate in Washington, D.C.
