Be guided by a professional screenwriter through the writing of a full screenplay

There are no available registration dates at this time.

This six-month writing lab offers writers community and the guidance of a professional screenwriter as they write a complete draft of a script for film or TV.  

It begins with a week-long workshop on campus, Story Structure & Character Development (Apr 29-May 3, 2019) and ends with a two week Screenwriting Retreat (Oct 13-26), during which the finished draft will be workshopped and revisions will be addressed.  In the intervening months, you will write your screenplay with the online community support of your fellow lab participants and every four weeks the instructor will react to your writing with notes and suggestions. If you are interested in working in shorter form, or learning how to write a TV script (e.g. a thirty-minute episode), the cycle will accommodate two drafts.

Writers wishing to participate in the lab should contact the instructor (via the registrar) for permission – [email protected]
