Intro to Screenwriting: Level 1
An introductory screenwriting course, suitable for complete beginners, someone who needs a screenwriting refresher, or even someone who just wants to be held accountable to write something. This five-week course with three-hour sessions each week focuses on feature film and covers the basics... story, structure, characterization, dialogue, screenplay format, script mechanics, and more. By the end of the course, students will have finished the first draft of either a short film script or a treatment for a feature film. Students will workshop their writing during class and receive constructive feedback from their classmates and instructor. 

Screenwriting: Level 2
This course picks up where Intro to Screenwriting leaves off. It offers instruction in some more advanced screenwriting elements, though the focus will be on students' writing and workshops. The course is six weeks with three-hour sessions, allowing each student to workshop their writing three times. Students will have the option to start a new project or to continue working on their project from the Intro course.
Prerequisite: Intro to Screenwriting 

Screenwriting: Level 3 (coming soon)
This course picks up--you guessed it--where Level 2 leaves off. Similar to Level 2, the focus will be on students' writing and workshops. Another six-week class, the goal is for students to finish the first draft of their feature script by the end of Level 3. 
Prerequisite: Intro to Screenwriting, Level 2

Intro to Television Writing (coming soon) 

This course takes material learned in Intro to Screenwriting, like story, structure, character, etc., and applies it to writing for television. By the end of the course, students will have finished the first draft of an outline for either 1) an original pilot or 2) a spec for an existing series. Students will workshop their writing during class and receive constructive feedback from their classmates and instructor.
