Screenwriting for Writers Registration

In this class, writers will develop a project toward first draft or subsequent draft completion. Peer and Instructor feedback will augment their own evaluation of their work. Projects may rotate from week to week to give enough time for in-session reading and discussion. In addition to script pages, writers will create a logline and short outline that clarifies the story of their script and aids in evaluation and rewrites.

NOTE: Writers may elect to develop a full length screenplay, short film screenplay or television pilot.
