We’re delighted to announce a new course in partnership with the Continuing Education program at SVA! Ed Valentine, the Emmy Award-winning writer of Sesame Street, Ultimate Spider-Man and The Fairly OddParents will guide you from script idea to first draft. His online course Scriptwriting Workshop will be the perfect place to finally get that idea down on paper.
Here’s some more info, along with the link to register:
In this fast-paced online practicum course, students will come in with an idea for a new screenplay and will leave with a completed first draft of a script. Pages submitted each week in the booth will receive supportive and thoughtful critique from the instructor and fellow students. Along the way, lively, multimedia lectures on particular elements of the form and practical advice about the business will be given. Both new and experienced screenwriters are welcome. Let’s have a screenwriting blast together this semester. NOTE: This course is fully online and asynchronous. Without a set meeting time each week, students can learn and participate on their own schedule. However, there are assignments that will be due by specific dates. Please see the Online Courses section of this website for technical requirements.
