Building off of what participant's learned in Screenwriting 101, this intermediate writing course builds upon skills previously introduced such as story, structure, character development, and conflict, as well as providing more in depth focus on writing and pitching for other mediums such as television and the web. Writers will be encouraged to bring an ongoing project into class, be open to group feedback, and develop throughout the ten week timeline.
Prerequisite: Completion of Screenwriting 101 or interview with/approval by course instructor
