Screenwriting is a journey. It takes time, and if you’re not prepared, it's easy to get lost and lose momentum. In this course, we'll challenge ourselves to explore the stories we care about and lay the groundwork to move our audience to tears, laughter, and even terror. Through exploratory writing and workshops, we'll design gripping narratives, develop complex characters, and write first acts that hook our audiences and set our scripts up for success.
