Advanced Weekend Screenwriting Intensive: Kill Your Darlings and Write Better Ones with Francesca Sloane

$525.00 Members
$585.00 Non-members

The pulse of every good TV show is characters that crawl inside your heart and wreck it. A good character is someone we root for, a great character is one that we become so invested in that we can’t NOT watch to see what they’re going to do next. When they’re destroyed, we’re destroyed, and that's a satisfying television experience! By workshopping teasers and first acts, we’ll ensure that we’re setting up characters worthy of that love. This involves setting up the entire world around them, hooking them in the first five pages, finding motivations that matter, and conveying a tone and texture for the world you’re creating. We’ll discuss tangible ways to craft real, organic characters that breathe life into your script from the second we meet them. We’ll be working with Emmy winner, FLEABAG, available on Amazon Prime. The script will be provided. Accepted participants will submit their first 15 pages by noon (MST) on May 15.

Applications for Lit Fest advanced workshops close on March 14 and can be found here. Learn more about Lit Fest Advanced Workshops here. Accepted writers will be given the password to register for the workshop in late March.
