SOULFUL SCREENWRITING: AN EMPOWERING INTERACTIVE WORKSHOP SERIES

Explore the soul of a screenplay and yourself as the writer:

Tuesdays – January 5, 12, 19, 26, February 2

4:30-6:30pm Pacific / 7:30-9:30pm Eastern

In this empowering 5-week interactive workshop, participants receive a big running start toward beginning a project from scratch or rewriting a current screenplay effectively.

We discuss crucial dramatic ingredients along with common screenwriting pitfalls and creative writing exercises and tools for solving them.
Each session includes one or two writing exercises culled from several of the Now Write! books to help you get out of your own way, get creative juices flowing, and benefit your screen stories.
This intimate workshop is a safe space to talk about your work – limited to 10 participants.
Soulful Screenwriting was designed by Laurie Lamson, a produced award-winning screenwriter, screenplay consultant, 4-year telecon host for International Screenwriters’ Association and author/editor of three Now Write! anthologies.
