This compacted version of SAW Video's Advanced Screenwriting was created for individuals hoping to develop their own individual writing projects in a smaller group and at a faster pace. Split into monthly lunch time meet-ups on the third Thursday of each month, this program is meant to be a safe creative workspace where writers share their work in a group setting led by instructor Nate Estabrooks. In this 3-session advanced course, writers will be guided through modules that help develop their craft and writing abilities in order to master the medium with words.
Participants should submit a writing sample (30 page project, draft script or outline) by the registration deadline. Please email your project to firstname.lastname@example.org.
