1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
This is a 6-week class meeting Fridays 1:30-3:30pm from September 13th-October 18th.
This is a course designed for writers looking to create screenplays, stage plays, and teleplays for one-hour televisions shows. Paramount in this effort, we will focus on an approach which is necessary in all dramatic writing — the importance of conflict. How we define, pinpoint and create interesting, unusual characters. How structure is the backbone of a dramatic piece, and how narrative drive and the understanding of the elements of the construction of a story are critical to any piece of dramatic writing. The course will include insights and address the specific individual demands inherent in the writing of screenplays, stage plays and one-hour television shows. The individual requirements of each discipline will be addressed, as well as the specific look of each form of dramatic writing. The instructor will arrange for individual, one-on-one sessions with each student above and beyond classroom instruction.
Tickets for this 6 week class series are $320. Please register at
