Have you ever wanted to write a play, TV pilot, or screenplay but didn’t know where to start? Or have you begun a script you haven't been able to finish? SCRIPTING will teach you the fundamentals of story building so that you can make it to “Fade Out. The End.” This new writing workshop, open to any type of script project or genre, focuses on dramatic structure: the sequencing of character-driven scenes for maximum emotional effect. Come to class with some ideas, an open mind, and the script writer’s most essential tool: index cards. The workshop culminates in an “Elevator Pitch Fest” for your script-in-progress.
Fee: $100/person. Partial scholarships are available on an as-needed basis. Space is limited to 8 students. Please register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
