Got an amazing idea for a web or TV series, or for a feature film, but not too sure how to turn that into a screenplay? Or maybe you started a screenplay, but you’re just not getting it finished. Or perhaps you’ve got that first draft in place, but you now need help with the polish.

“In this 6-week online workshop, you’ll be setting goals and sharing work with other screenwriters, and this combination can really help you get more done,” says instructor Kerry Muir. “You’ll also connect with me each week to gain new insights and skills that you can immediately apply to your current project. We’ll cover a number of topics that tend to apply no matter where you are in the process, including the why & how of story structure, weaving main plots, subplots & twists, and writing better dialogue through improv."

Filmmaking is highly collaborative. Every project begins not only with a great screenplay, but with a talented screenwriter willing to share her work. The workshop setting is ideal training. By sharing your work and responding to work by other writers, you refine your skills and become part of the community.
