About this course:

Learning to write a screenplay is a process, and to do it well can take years of practice. This workshop offers two tried-and-true ways to make a lot of progress in a short period of time as you: 1) learn how to write a strong outline and 2) get personalized feedback on your work. A series of writing exercises and assignments help you master the basics of screenwriting, especially the all-important screenplay structure, while also exploring scene development, characterization, and dialogue. Boil down your story into a one-sentence logline and then expand that into a complete outline for a feature-length script. With a solid, entertaining outline in hand, you leave the workshop ready to conceptualize and begin work on your own script beyond the classroom.
