Have you ever watched a movie, been fascinated by the intricacies of its plot, been swept away by its scope, engrossed by the drama, excited by the dialogue, and thought to yourself, “I could have written that”? Well, I believe you can.

My 4-week class is designed for anyone who has ever had an idea for a screenplay and wondered what makes a great script into a successful film.

You will learn:
• Why structure is important, not just in film but in any art form
• The basics of the storytelling arc
• The importance of character to a strong narrative
• How to craft interesting dialogue unique to each character
• Multi-character narratives that break the typical mainstream structure
• The importance of formatting
• How to use plot devices to enhance your story

You will be emailed the Zoom link 24 hours before the start of class. If you sign up less than 24 hours before the start of the class, please email Kristen at for your link.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending. Check local COVID-19 restrictions and updates.
