Do you have a screenplay that you've been wanting to finish but haven't been able to? Are you stuck on a plot point or a tough scene? In this 10-week workshop we will take your unfinished screenplay to completion with weekly feedback sessions and tips on how to get your story back on track. Come prepared with a cursory knowledge of screenplay structure and at least a completed first act of a screenplay—which you have either developed independently or in Feature Writing I.
Prerequisites: A completed first act of a screenplay—which you have either developed independently or in the four weeks prior to this workshop, in Feature Writing I.
