Free Screenwriting Workshop

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Launched in 2009, Story Lab Toronto is an alternative to your typical screenwriting course. At SLT, there is no teacher, only researchers and moderators. Literally anything and everything related to screenwriting is discussed. SLT had a great year in 2010 helping our writers develop 14 original projects and show them off to producers, agents and filmmakers at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival. To celebrate our 1-year anniversary and expansion into a new location, Story Lab Toronto is offering a 2-week series of Free Workshops on Thursday Nov 18th & Nov 25th. Through these workshops we will cover:
    a) The Screenwriting glossary
    b) 3 act structure
    c) Character Design If you like the experience with Story Lab Toronto, at the end of these sessions you can register to join the full course that is ongoing.
    Thursday November 18th & 25th
    Each workshop lasts about 2 hours

    Agree with those who mention having it on a weekend. Really need to understand plot development that creates believable suspense.
