Intro to Screenwriting 
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. The course meets weekly for eight weeks, with three-hour sessions each class. The material focuses on narrative feature-length film and covers the basics... story, structure, characterization, theme, dialogue, screenplay format, and much more.


By the end of the course, students will have finished the first draft of a treatment (a detailed synopsis) for an original feature film. Students will workshop their writing during class and receive constructive feedback from their classmates and instructor. 

Screenwriting: Workshopping with Caitlin 
An online screenwriting course that focuses on students workshopping their writing and receiving constructive feedback (as well as giving feedback to classmates). Students can work on any project, at any stage of the writing process... a treatment, an outline, screenplay pages, a short film, a TV pilot or spec, an idea you've been knocking around, or anything in between!


The first week of this seven-week course will involve students getting to know each other and pitching their story, and the remaining six weeks of class will be made up of workshops. Students will be assigned one of two groups, and each student will workshop their writing three times throughout the course (every other week).
Prerequisite: Intro to Screenwriting
