This four-week online workshop will offer you prompts, accountability, community, and a method for turning your idea into a completed draft.

The workshop is designed around daily writing prompts, five per week, aimed at moving your script forward—first by exploring and strengthening the script’s concept; then by developing character, settings, and conflict; then by writing scenes.

Each prompt is designed to be manageable: generally a half-hour’s worth of writing (though of course each one will hopefully inspire you to write more, whenever you’re able). The course will also be designed so you can skip prompts or pick-and-choose the ones you think are useful for your project. You will have the opportunity to post your work on our shared website, and to comment on one another’s work.

The course is mostly asynchronous, so you can work at your own pace—but once per week, we’ll get together in a scheduled Zoom for discussion and commiseration.

The class is open to writers of all levels. It is aimed mainly at people writing for film and/or television, but should also be applicable to stageplays and other media.

$200 for 4 weeks. Venmo @cdewan and send an email to cdewan at gmail.com, and I’ll get you a login to the course’s website.
