About this course:

This six-week course is perfect for anyone getting started on their path to becoming a screenwriter. Each class offers a broad-strokes introduction to a different writing format, such as Feature Film, Television Specs, Television Pilots, Web Series, and Podcasting, plus a look at the business of writing. Lectures by guest speakers offer insight and instruction on each topic, followed by guided workshop sessions where students put those theories into action on their own material. The goal of the course is to give new writers a taste of different screenwriting types to help deepen their overall knowledge while sparking their creative energy. At the end of the quarter, students should feel more confident about their skills and be prepared for further study of writing.
