And, you’ll get a crash course in how to write for TV whether you’re creating an original pilot, a spec script or actually working on a show.

THE BIRTHING PROCESS: Once you’re writing, how do you keep it up? What are the necessary skills to show up regularly on the page? How do you give birth to a project and keep it going? These questions and more are explored in a simple step-by-step methodology. Best of all you’ll tailor YOUR PROCESS to the way YOU want to work. Find out how to stay in the writing game.
PLAYWRITING INTENSIVE: Love the theatre?? This intensive covers how plays differ from TV, an overview of theatrical styles, and maps out a way to start writing your play whether it’s a solo show, a short piece or a full length.
