This advanced workshop is intended for 12 serious writers who want to turn good scripts into great ones. You first work closely with the instructor to analyze your script's overall strengths and weaknesses. Every week, you turn in pages and receive back specific notes that help guide you to concentrate on structure, characterization, scene construction and other aspects of the screenwriting process. As you rewrite, you get further feedback, designed to prepare you to enter screenplay competitions and the commercial marketplace. The course goal is to rewrite your full-length feature film script.

Submit the feature-length screenplay that you will rewrite in the course.
