Whether you've always wanted to write a screenplay, or you're looking to polish a work in progress, this workshop is for you! During this intensive one-day workshop, you will be given all the tools you need to develop and improve your own screenplays. We'll break down structure and explore beats, character, and how to properly set up and sell the world of your story. Using a combination of writing exercises, script excerpts, and film clips, this course will allow you to recognize opportunities to improve your work as you go.

There is no material fee for this workshop. However participants are required to bring a laptop or a notebook, and are encouraged to bring along some of their work. Additionally once enrolled participants may send one piece of their work to the instructor for review before the workshop, so they may receive tailored feedback.
