SCREENWRITING 101

LOS ANGELES
7 Tuesdays, 7-10pm
May 29th - July 10th, 2018
In Hollywood
$400 for 7 weeks.
** 1 Spot Left **

Despite its name, Screenwriting 101 is geared to both new and experienced screenwriters alike. Professional television writers as well as Screenwriting MFAs start here. The focus of the 7 weeks is a new understanding of how to approach story structure that goes well beyond the three act paradigm. The class will push the writer to structure their story through scenes and sequences rather than independent "plot points" in order to maximize dramatic momentum and emotional resonance.
