This 90-minute course will look at the most basic elements of screenwriting: character, dialogue and plot. Our goal is to show that nothing is universal when it comes to movies. Some films have no dialogue, while others are full of long-winded soliloquies. Participants can expect to leave the class with a rough outline for their next screenplay, and a refreshed perspective on the art of writing movies! Writers of all levels and experience welcome!

Who Should Register?

Write Down the Street has a special focus on making the creative writing workshop more accessible to those who face challenges due to cost, language skills, lack of access to transportation, and other barriers. We believe that all voices must be spotlighted with the range and fullness they deserve.
