Do you have a feature screenplay you've been wanting to write in a creative, supportive environment? This is the perfect screenwriting workshop to launch you towards your goal. Over 10 weeks, participants will focus on the development of an original feature script - starting with a logline, working on character development and arcs, writing a one-page treatment, three-page outline, and writing the first 10-pages - which are all key elements to creating a feature screenplay! In this virtual workshop participants will receive feedback from their instructor and classmates, as well as discuss reading assignments and pre-recorded lectures.
