Greg Smith founded Agile Writers in 2011 with the mission of utilizing a new approach to helping beginning writers complete a first-draft in six months. The Agile Writer Method is based upon the writings of experts in mythology, screenwriting, and psychology. He also co-authored the Reel Heroes series; books on heroes in the movies.

His seminars on the Agile Writer Method have informed and delighted hundreds of writers, scholars, and university students. Since 2011, Agile Writer authors have completed dozens of first draft novels, eight published books, and two members have been nominated for the coveted James River Writer Best Unpublished Novel Contest.
