A course designed to clarify the four basic types of scenes in a screenplay and how to write effectively for each. Assignments are designed so that writers may use them to expand or polish a project that is already in progress or as idea-generating puzzles. Old pros and rank beginners welcome. You will need to prepare work to bring to the first class, so be sure to register ahead of time.
What to expect: a structured approach with weekly assignments- everyone brings in new work to get a reading every week.
