SLF Presents: Courses

Introducing SLF Courses! Courses are virtual classes focused on helping writers master different writing methods and sharpen their understanding and use of the various elements of speculative fiction. These classes will range in duration from single weekend workshops to 6-8 week courses, covering a wide range of topics. 

The SLF decided to create these courses to continue fulfilling our goal of offering masters-level creative writing education through accessible online programming. To see this dream through, we’ve reached out to some truly exceptional experts in the field, including writers, editors, and more. 

We promise that our courses will be taught by experienced and passionate instructors. First up is our Intro to Screenwriting course with award-winning director, writer, and actor Ted Schneider. See below for more information.

Intro to Screenwriting will take place over the course of six weeks from September 20 to October 25, on Tuesdays from 6 to 8:30 PM CST. In this class, students will explore principles of narrative structure for use in writing a narrative screenplay. Students will also create a logline and short outline that clarifies the story of their script and aid in rewrites. The course will be taught by director, writer, actor, consultant, and teacher Ted Schneider. Schneider is known for directing award-winning films like “Early Light” and “Nothing Happened.” The course is $350, but is discounted for our Neutrino, Electron, Quark, Proton, and Atom members.
