For the love

of story.

Superwords is a ragtag group of screenwriters, comedy writers, and copywriters – here to create unforgettable scripts. Because, hey, we actually love doing this stuff. 

The Superwords mission.

To create stories that jump off the page – stories you can’t wait to bring to life.

We do this by listening to you, to your clients, to every word in the brief. By leveraging time-tested writing techniques. And by finding new ways to tell stories that move. 

Meet the team.​
