WriteMovies is delivering this course in partnership with Screenwriters Forum, and it will be run via Zoom over a period of 6 months. Sessions will take place on the last Thursday of each month, with the first coming up soon on January 28th!

Available internationally, no matter what corner of the world you’re from, you can book the whole course for $150 or pick and choose the workshops you’re most interested in for $30 each.
