Class Description

Do you have an idea for a feature length screenplay, but you aren't sure how to begin? This class is a great place to start! In this introductory workshop, we will start with idea generation and then move to structure, format, and a discussion of software and online resources to begin your script. From there, we will study scenes, feature length plot structure, and will eventually write the first 10 pages of your feature length script! This class is meant to be for beginners, but writers of all levels of experience are welcome!

Introducción a la escritura de guiones


6 jueves de 2:30pm-4:30pm EST empezando el 2 de marzo hasta el 5 de abril

¿Tienes una idea para un guión de largometraje sin saber cómo empezar? ¡Esta clase es el perfecto punto de partida! En este taller introductorio, primero generaremos una lista de ideas y luego nos centraremos en la estructura y el formato de los guiones, además de examinar los software y otros recursos virtuales para comenzar a escribir. De allí, estudiaremos las escenas y la estructura de la trama cinemática; culminaremos escribiendo las primeras 10 páginas de su guión. Aunque esta clase esté destinada para principiantes, escritores de cualquier nivel están invitados a participar.

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.

These programs are offered tuition-free thanks to the support of generous donors who are committed to our mission of ensuring all voices are heard.
