Screenwriting — July 12-16 (11am-12:30pm ET)

$249.00

From timeless blockbusters to sensational serials, there is—behind every great movie, show, or short—an equally great writer wielding words to create entertainment. But how often do we stop to consider and appreciate the elegance and mastery required by the art of screenwriting, let alone have an opportunity to try our hand at the craft?

In this workshop, explore the power of dialogue, the intricacy of body language, scenery, and nonverbal cues, and the real-world relevance of screenwriting as you work to grow and hone your writing skills.

Meet the Workshop Facilitator below.
