“As screenwriters, we tend to work alone for protracted amounts of time in silence, but when we’re hard at work on a script, it’s invaluable to hear how our words hit the air,” says instructor Kerry Muir. “Immediately, we notice what works and what doesn’t. Likewise, our stories come into clearer focus.”

The Screenwriter’s Workshop will provide a structured sanctuary for writers who are in the beginning stages of a screenplay or nearly done with a script. Each week, students will present scenes via a series of informal table readings for feedback and constructive criticism.

“While this class is built primarily around giving and receiving feedback, each week we’ll also touch on at least one craft element, such as conflict, through-line, obligatory scenes, and more,” says Kerry. “Additionally, we’ll dive into a handful of exercises, both craft-specific and intuition-based, designed to allow the work to spring from both the head and the heart.”

  • Kerry's enthusiasm for the content of the class, her use of writing exercises, and the collaborative nature of the class demystified and relaxed the writing experience making it seem so much more accessible and less daunting. I now have the confidence to move forward with my screenplay as well as the tools to write it within the confines of the structure.

  • Kerry was phenomenal! She truly cares about her students and the work that they produce. She took time outside of class to provide thorough feedback and additional materials for us to review. Most importantly, she cultivated an environment that felt safe and encouraging. I received constructive criticism and support workshopping my screenplay. I am very thankful for Kerry's wisdom, positive energy and time.

  • Kerry was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of screenwriting. She was really wonderful at getting her ideas across to the class, helping us all understand the layout of the genre. And her feedback and help on the screenplays was fantastic.
