Group Screenplay Workshop - $5.00

  • Sep 17, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

$5.00 if you're bringing pages.

Please bring at least six copies of ONE of the following:

1. Ten pages of an original feature screenplay (or a ten or less-page short film) that you wrote yourself.
2. A treatment that you wrote yourself (one to two-page synopsis of the plot) for a proposed original screenplay.

Time permitting, we'll workshop whatever you bring. The amount of time we spend per work depends on how many screenwriters come by. If you haven't written a script or treatment, then come with your questions and a willingness to provide constructive feedback for others.

Regardless of what you bring, be sure to PRINT OUT COPIES so that we can read it together. If you don't print them out, we'll have no way to workshop your work! The number of copies necessary will depend on the total in attendance, so check back here close to the event for an estimated number. Printing out at least enough for two people to share would be appreciated!

If you haven't written a screenplay or treatment but are curious about the process, then we definitely have a place for you. For beginners, we highly recommend grabbing a copy of The Complete Screenwriter's Manual (http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Screenwriters-Manual-Comprehensive-Reference/dp/0321397932) and screenwriting software (Free: CeltX.com, more features: FinalDraft.com)

For more personalized script attention, I offer one-on-one screenplay coverage services. Details and testimonials: http://jaredmgordon.net/screenwriting. 10% off for Cambridge Screenwriting members.

We can't wait to see you!

    Putting in my usual plug for a place with a bar next time. A diet rum and coke has a lot fewer calories than any one thing at Panera. Here's hoping.

    This reminded me how much I miss these workshops and how helpful they can be. Very excited to be writing again. Thanks for all the feedback.

    Sorry I had to leave early. I live in Mattapan. The T is fine. But, the last two block walk from the bus to my host's home can be dicey. I do think that Mattapan will be a safer, more vibrant community in the future. I just fear that the lower class and the middle class will be pushed out and prevented from being a part of that.

    Were there any set of tables that were not fixed to the floor? I had a hard time both seeing and hearing people at the end of the table.
