Whether you’re already acquainted with screenwriting or brand new to the medium, here’s an opportunity to join a dynamic, comprehensive class that will give you all the basics you need to write a script in a fun workshop setting!

In this 8-week, 3-hour class, half the time will be devoted to discussing real world, Hollywood-ready formatting techniques as well as some of the more fluid elements, like narrative, dialogue, theme, character, and structure arcs.

Learn to take what’s in your head and make movie magic on the page!
