A Cutting Edge Way to Learn the Craft

Save nearly 60% on 10 of my Craft classes. Details at the end of this post!

Screenwriting is a craft. While that certainly encompasses the actual script-writing process, it also entails everything from finding one’s writing voice to mastering techniques in developing characters, learning different story-crafting principles to knowing how to write loglines, treatments, and beat sheets.

In other words, there’s a lot to learning the craft.

In 2017, I will be offering 10 Craft classes, each a one-week immersion into specific aspects of the writing craft.

Here is the schedule:

Each class offers:

  • Seven lectures written by me
  • 24/7 online forum Q&As moderated by instructor
  • Pro insider writing tips
  • A 90-minute live teleconference with instructor and class members

Since the classes are online, you can pretty much do everything on your own time, at your own pace. Download and read lectures. Listen to my audio commentary. Track and interact with others in message board conversations. Workshop your own loglines or writing.

You can participate as much or as little as you’d like, although I have to say the writers who take my classes are terrific, so you’ll probably find the community created in each session a welcome one to join in the dialogue.

Also this: Writers from over 40 countries have taken Screenwriting Master Class courses and that variety of backgrounds enhances the educational and social experience.

Access courses anytime and anywhere on your computer, tablet or smartphone.

Learn the craft amidst a supportive, lively, and fun online community from around the world.

Receive feedback from instructors who know the business and have a passion for teaching.

You can double down on your learning curve by enrolling in the Craft Package which gives you exclusive access to all of the content provided in each of the Craft classes. And in 2017, it’s an even better deal because I am including in the Package two new courses I will introduce in the spring: Scene-Writing Workshop and Dialogue-Writing Workshop.

That means you get not 8, but 10 Craft classes at a savings of nearly 60% off the regular rate.

How to put learning the craft into overdrive in 2017? Consider the Craft curriculum at Screenwriting Master Class.

And consider taking advantage of the Craft Package special offer: Immediate access to all of the Craft class content. Automatic enrollment in all ten Craft classes. All at a nearly 60% discount.

As always, I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

Onward!
