LA TV WRITING INTENSIVE – Winter and Summer 2017

This small immersive workshop of 9-10 writers will meet for seven days in Los Angeles. Each class will be 3 hours and there will be an opportunity for individual consultations.

In a clearly defined step-by- step process students learn how to write a SPEC SCRIPT or ORIGINAL PILOT. A spec script is for a TV show that is currently on the air and an original pilot is for a TV series you create. A great spec script and pilot are what you need to get a job as a television writer.

After you select a show, you will learn how to brainstorm story ideas, structure an outline and write scenes with dialogue, all in a constructive, supportive workshop atmosphere. The class covers both comedies and dramas and is designed for both the beginning and experienced writer. Perfect for LA locals and out-of-towners looking for a script-cation.
