Item #41: One Spot in 'Intro to Screenwriting' class

Join instructor Caitlin Durante (Bechdel Cast host, Master-degree-haver) for an online introductory screenwriting course! It's suitable for complete beginners, someone who needs a screenwriting refresher, someone who wants to be held accountable to write something, and everyone in between!

This eight-week class focuses on narrative feature-length film, and it covers crafting a story, structure, characterization, dialogue, theme, tone, screenplay format, and much, much more!

By the end of the course, students will finish the first draft of a treatment (a detailed synopsis) for an original feature-length screenplay. Treatments will be workshopped during class, and students will receive constructive feedback from their classmates and instructor.

Caitlin also offers Level 2, 3, and 4 courses, which are a continuation of 'Intro to Screenwriting' that encourage students to write and workshop the first draft of their feature-length screenplay, one act at a time.

Dates: Wednesdays - April 27, May 4, 11, 18, 25, June 1, 8, 15

Time: this section starts at 4pm PT / 7pm ET

Length: each session is 3 hours

Location: online via Zoom
