Introduction to Professional Screenwriting Course: Workshop 3 – The First Draft
WriteMovies is teaming up with Screenwriters Forum to deliver this professional 6-month screenwriting course. We will teach you how to write a professional script, how to nurture the concept, and how to take it out into the world and sell it for yourself.
The course is aimed at professional and aspiring writers for TV, film, and video games, and every class is delivered by experienced and expert screenwriters. Workshops will be delivered online via Zoom.
You will learn:
- The process of going from a “zero draft” to a first draft
- How to bring the nuances of the writer’s ability are brought to the fore
- Tips on writing processes and writing lifestyles
- How to make time to write
Learn the craft. Build an idea from nothing. Write your story your way. Take your finished project to the world.
