Susan Eileen Jizba, Screenwriter

I’m getting back in the game.  

I had fun playing around with weaving fibers and fables and selling custom story snippets in my Etsy Shop and now I’m getting back to screenwriting.

I started off at UCLA Extension in the Writer’s Program. I had some success with my screenwriting including winning some awards. I almost sold one of my original TV pilots to a British Producer before the financing fell through. ABC considered hiring me as a writer and I had industry interest in my feature specs.

Recently I updated my features and pilot and I’m currently writing a new feature. 

New Project – “The Portrait

My current project “The Portrait” is a feature – drama.  

My Pinterest Board “The Portrait” is my inspiration board for this project.

It gives a sneak peek as to the themes running through this project. 

Completed Features/TV Pilot:

Here’s a list of some my projects (see above menu for links to the summaries):

“Guilty” – feature, drama

“The Eternal Flame” – feature, period piece set in 16th Century Italy, drama

“Formosa Place” – TV Pilot – one hour, drama/comedy


Just to put it all in one place, here’s a few of my links:

General Pinterest

My blog contains samples of the types of “story snippets” that I sold through my Etsy shop – customers gave me 15 words and I wrote “story snippets” using their words.

I’m currently engrossed with my characters and the world of my new script “The Portrait” and happily screenwriting right now…..
