Do you have an idea for a screenplay, but don't know how to begin? Are you intimidated when you sit down at your keyboard? Don't know the difference between subtext and subplots? Can't afford the screenwriting classes at the local schools?Then this is the group for you.

The goal of this group is to help beginning screenwriters to complete their first script. In a workshop setting, we will work on the fundamentals of screenwriting. Through a series of weekly meeting , we will watch movies, read scripts and do writing exercises to develop your screenwriting skills. We will work in a small group setting. By the end of the 8 weeks, you should have a finished short screenplay.
