About VOP


What is Voices on Paper ?

Voices On Paper is a group of passionate actors, writers, and script doctors who came together to help each other improve their scripts.
The chemistry between the members sparked so organically that VOP expanded into a weekly table read workshop group to help other writers.
Forming a team with a progressive mindset, VOP aims to provide a safe space for storytellers and deliver actionable feedback. 

Is Voices On Paper right for me?

VOP functions as a writer's room for screenwriters at all levels in their screenwriting journey.

Hearing a script out loud helps immensely with dialogue, flow, and pacing. The feedback immediately following the read helps flesh out characters, plot, structure, concept, and theme. An open discussion and additional questions from you after our notes is encouraged. 

The Team

Voices on Paper provides a safe space for creatives to share their work, hear their concepts and dialogue out loud, and receive constructive criticism through the lenses of individuals who have had entirely different life experiences and points of view.

VOP has been working together on a weekly basis since August 2020.
Our members have studied various acting methods and won numerous awards for performing, writing, directing, producing, and more.

The VOP team ranges wide in ethnic diversity, ages, LGBTQAI+ and allies, gender bending, foreign languages, and talents for accents, dialects, and voices.
