Class Description

You’ve got a brilliant tv pilot or screenplay idea, and maybe even an outline or a few scenes written…now what? It’s time to finish that first draft!

In this fast-paced class, we will write and workshop 4-5 scenes per week, focusing on how to keep every scene engaging and moving the story forward. Toward that end, we’ll read and analyze an award-winning screenplay and/or teleplay (potential writers include Greta Gerwig, Ryan Coogler, Phoebe Waller-Bridge). Each week, we will also dive deep into a particular craft topic such as 3-act structure, character, dialogue, genre, world building, and revision tactics, applying what we learn to both our own writing and our feedback to each other. You will leave this class having made significant progress on (or even completed!) your first draft, as well as a strategy for revision.

This class is ideal for students who have completed GrubStreet’s ‘Intro to TV Writing and Screenwriting’ class, or have a screenplay or teleplay beatsheet and/or outline ready to go.

*NOTE that while our handy dandy "Schedule" tab states a 6-7pm class time, there are actually no live meetings for this class! Assignments will be given on a weekly basis. Students will have access to the online class portal starting at 5pm on the first day of class. Instructions for logging onto the online portal will be emailed to registered students before 5pm the first day of class.
