Screenwriting 201: Getting Reads and Making Sales

You've written a screenplay, maybe even four. Now what? In this informative 3-hour class you will learn what it takes to make your script shine, get it read, and get that writing job.

Some of the topics we'll cover include:

  • Rewriting*
  • Loglines
  • Queries
  • Contests
  • Managers, Agents, & Lawyers
  • Networking
  • Pitching*

*Rewriting and Pitching are massive topics and entire courses are offered to cover them alone. We'll cover a lot of ground but this is not a master class on either. I will hold separate classes in the next couple of months and offer a discount to anyone who attends this class.

By the end of this class you'll have a plan of action to get your script ready and send it out into the world, and hopefully land that writing job!

Anyone attending both Screenwriting 101 and 201 classes, the price is $30 (you save $10).

    Sorry about not making the meettup. Badly underestimated the time I needed to navigate this world infrastructure that is Vancouver. Traffic was brutal with all the detours and construction. I'll skytrain it next time.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
