One of the hardest things to do for aspiring writers is to get noticed in order to jump-start their careers. Entering competitions, getting internships, sending query letters, and networking are the most common ways to break into the industry. In this course, we focus on screenwriting competitions, how to write a script that places in competitions, what judges are looking for, how to write a killer opening that engages your reader, what mistakes to avoid, which competitions to enter, and how to use competition wins to propel your writing career.
This course is held via video teleconference. Instructors use Zoom to offer live class meetings at the designated class meeting time. Students must be present at the course meeting time as each student’s final grade may include scores for participation.
Please inform your instructor if you will miss a class meeting. You are responsible for any class information you missed. We suggest you arrange with a fellow classmate to share their notes when feasible.
