SPRING 2018 SCREENWRITING CLASSES

All Writing Workshops Dallas screenwriting instructors have industry experience and are professional writers/teachers. Our instructors are dedicated teachers who have a passion for the craft of screenwriting. Workshops are limited to eight writers. Students will have their work critiqued in class and will receive written feedback from the instructor and their classmates. Private consultations with the instructor will also be provided. 

Before completing your purchase, you must first receive enrollment confirmation using the Register button below each class or seminar description to ensure there is still room in the class/seminar. Refund Policy: included in the price of each multi-week workshop is a $100 non-refundable enrollment fee, required for all multi-week workshops. If a student drops a multi-week workshop within 5 days of a class start date, all but the enrollment fee will be refunded. After the 5-day grace period, there are no refunds, and students will be required to pay the full course fee. We have this refund policy because we keep our classes intentionally small. Dropping a class at the last minute or after the class starts means that someone else who wanted to be in the class cannot participate, and so we don't offer refunds after the 5-day grace period. For a writing workshop to work, enrolled students must be dedicated to the class..

All returning writers receive a $25 discount on any course offering.

INTRO TO SCREENWRITING

INTRODUCTION TO SCREENWRITING - CLASS BEGINS Tuesday, March 27, 2018

6 SPOTS REMAIN OPEN

This course is for the true screenwriting novice. Have you ever had a great idea for a movie or TV show but didn’t know where to begin? It can certainly be overwhelming as screenwriting has it’s own style, rules and format.  In this 8-week course, you will learn the basics, leaving you with a great foundation to write a screenplay of your own! We will cover topics such as screenplay formatting, how to properly structure a screenplay, feature film vs. television, single cam vs. multi cam screenplays and the top 10 deadly sins to avoid when writing a screenplay.  We will round out the course studying the Oscar nominated screenplays for best feature, and you will have an opportunity to write an original scene or two of your own!  If you have NO prior screenwriting knowledge or experience, this course is a pre-requisite for Screenwriting II and III.

Note: Students are required to purchase The Hollywood Standard: The Complete Authoritative Guide to Script Format and Style by Christopher Riley and Save the Cat by Blake Snyder. Please contact the instructor, Whitney Davis, for a 25% discount on the Final Draft Software if you need it.

Fee: $495 for new students; $470 for returning students. (Payment plans available to returning students.)
