Deadlines for Spring Workshops Online
The deadline to apply for our BIPOC Scholarships is coming up fast: this Saturday (February 26th) at 5pm Pacific. Selected writers will work in a small group through a new script idea, building from well grounded characters to the story architecture and then to first draft pages.
Time is also running out to apply for our next Concept to Pages and Writing Is Rewriting programs, which start on March 12th and 19th, respectively. Both are live online workshops, with one-to-one sessions included for additional coaching and feedback.
You may also apply to join our 2022 Italy Screenwriting Retreats. Covid permitting, we're looking forward to heading to Umbria May 30th for a nurturing and productive writing experience.
