Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this screenwriting class:

Do you have a short story, novel, personal essay, memoir or nonfiction book that you’d like to adapt as a TV series or feature? In this three-hour Adaptation class, award-winning short story scribe and successful TV writer Corinne Stikeman (BIG DOOR PRIZE) will teach you the screenwriter’s toolset (visual storytelling, propulsive, character-driven writing, layered dialogue, compelling set pieces & solid spines) to bring your IP to the big or little screen! Through craft lectures, examples & in-class writing exercises you’ll learn dos and don’ts of re-envisioning your material for a different format while preserving the elements that your readers have grown to love. By the end, you’ll have a clearer understanding of what’s involved in transforming your opus into a blockbuster as well as a clear process for breaking down your pages so you can move forward.

After studying with us, our alums have landed 233 staff writing positions on shows including FARGO, PERRY MASON, AMERICAN BORN CHINESE, THE BROTHERS SUN, FRASIER and DAVE and won 147 fellowships/staffing program spots at organizations including Disney, NBCU, WB, Paramount & Disruptors.

Note: This is primarily a lecture class with some in-class exercises but not everyone will get to share their writing for feedback due to the seminar format.
