Advanced Weeklong Dramatic Writing Workshop: The First Act, the One Act, or the Pilot with Peter Parnell

$850.00 Members
$910.00 Non-members

This weeklong workshop will aim at hitting that crucial first note: as viewers, we know a TV show has to hook us early if it’s going to hook us at all. Otherwise we just find something else that does. We’ll work through our scripts with an eye on the moving parts–establishing a narrative, introducing killer characters, and honing your voice. The goal will be for writers to leave the week with specific ideas about how to hone their material and continue on with focus and energy. Meetings will include table reads, exercises, and discussions of the business of plays, film, and TV. Accepted participants will submit a first act or pilot by noon (MST) on May 11 and will have the opportunity to schedule a meeting with Lin during the week of class.

Applications for Lit Fest advanced workshops can be found here. Learn more about Lit Fest Advanced Workshops here. Accepted writers will be given the password to register for the workshop on a rolling basis.
