Inspiring, practical, encouraging. The kickstart you need.
I have been around writing for a very long time from many perspectives, have degrees in writing and so on and within the first 15 minutes of class I started hearing things from Jacob that I had never heard anywhere. He is a brilliant teacher and the kind of person you just want to be around because I know he is changing not just my writing but my life in ways that I still have not even fully realized yet.

This is a great class for dispelling your fears as a writer and setting goals to tackle your next big project. He gives you the foundation to writing a good screenplay (movement, format, structure) and the habits you need to make it happen. What happens next, however, is up to you.
