Instructor Statement: 

Screenwriting is a craft that improves with experience. To succeed as a writer for screen, TV, digital media or stage, it is essential to understand and learn the fundamentals of dramatic storytelling. My goal is to create a safe and supportive environment where students can exercise their imaginations, explore their talents and discover how to get their ideas onto the page in the most powerful and moving way possible. We’ll do that by deconstructing the myths around screenwriting and the business of being a screenwriter and exploring the elements that go into making a good story great and a great screenplay a page-turner.
