Join the International Screenwriters’ Association (ISA) in celebrating the Table Read My Screenplay Contest’s winning screenplay Dirty Words by Rachel Kempf. We will be reading excerpts from the script, directed by Liz Fisher, recipient of the 2018 Princess Grace Award in Theater and the Stage Directors and Choreographers Directing Award in conjunction with the Kennedy Center. Sit back and enjoy the funny, quick-paced story which was a PAGE Semifinalist in 2019 and has won a place in the hearts of ISA, and many others, landing Rachel on the ISA Development Slate.

Rachel Kempf is a Los-Angeles based screenwriter with a passion for kick-ass female-driven comedy and a shameful history of writing smutty romance novels (don’t judge). She received a Master of Fine Arts in Screenwriting from the University of Texas at Austin in 2015. While at UT, she co-created the webseries Texting with Gosling and was listed in Variety Magazine’s 110 Students to Watch list. Her comedy feature and pilot scripts have gained numerous accolades from NexTV Writing and Pitch Competition, Slamdance, Cinestory, ATX Television Pitch Fest, Script Pipeline, Hollyshorts, and the PAGE Awards, where two of her romantic comedy scripts, Dirty Words and Loser’s Guide to Love, were 2019 semifinalists. After being awarded a special distinction prize in the Gidden Media / Stage 32 Romantic Comedy Contest, she received a development deal from Gidden Media and is currently at work with them on romantic comedy for people who hate weddings.

The International Screenwriters’ Association (ISA) was founded by independent filmmakers who understand that there are many different roads to success.

ISA has been serving the community since 2008.
