Screenwriting Masterclass

Have a great story idea you want to bring to life?

Turn your idea into a professional, well-structured story with engaging characters.

Learn a practical, repeatable framework to:

  • Turn ideas into engaging three-dimensional characters and well-structured stories.
  • Diagnose specific story problems when "something doesn't feel right"
  • Fix structure and character problems with ease
  • Help other writers by being able to give them practical, actionable story feedback they will love.
  • Interpret and apply feedback to improve your script, or any kind of narrative story.
  • Improve your story with every rewrite to help you deliver on schedule.

What kind of stories do these tools work for?

The tools apply to any narrative story. This includes novels, TV shows, long-form journalism, feature films, documentaries and more.

What will we do in the workshop?

Over the course of the weekend, you'll LEARN the framework.

Then you'll APPLY it to develop your idea into a well structured short form script. 

What do past attendees Say?

"Best writing workshop. I want my money back for every other writing workshop I've taken!” - Juliet R.

"I learned more in one weekend than in my four year playwriting degree!" - Shawn D.

"Forget about any other workshop. Want to become a great writer? This workshop will help you get there". - Rafael V.

What will I walk away with?

  • A workshopped "Calling Card" short script.
  • A chance to have your script produced as a short film.
  • Professional tools you can use for the rest of your life.
  • One-on-one personalized attention & feedback from an experienced professional.
  • Connect with a community of creatives for continued support.

Who should attend?

The tools you will learn are useful to professionals and novices alike.

Past attendees include:

  • Produced writers looking to develop their next film.
  • Filmmaker developing on their scripts. 
  • Actors wanting to take control of their careers.
  • Producer wanting to work more effectively with writers.
  • Business owners wanting to tell better stories about their companies.
  • Complete Novices with a cool idea!

If you want to develop your ideas into stories that win awards and build careers, we look forward to writing with you!
