Hi all,

members of this group. The regular registration fee is $95, but if

Gordy Hoffman



First Ten Pages Workshop (limit 12 writers)

Toronto Writers' Centre
627 Bloor Street West
Toronto, Ontario

Fee $95

Gordy Hoffman, the Sundance award-winning writer/director (Love Liza, 
A Coat of Snow) and founder of the BlueCat Screenplay Competition, 
comes to Toronto to lead a screenwriting workshop on Sunday, May 
16th, from 9 am- 6 pm.

Winner of the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at the Sundance Film 
Festival for LOVE LIZA, Gordy Hoffman made his feature directorial 
debut with his script, A COAT OF SNOW, which world premiered in 2005 
at the Locarno International Film Festival. The movie would go on to 
win the Domani Vision Award at VisionFest, held at the Tribeca Cinemas.

He has conducted screenwriting workshops all over North America, 
Poland and the UK. He recently taught screenwriting at the USC School 
of Cinematic Arts and the University of Kansas, and he's serving as a 
panelist for the 2010 IFP Script to Screen Conference in New York 
City, as well as a judge for the 2010 McKnight Screenwriting 
Fellowships. He's attached to direct CORDELIA, written by Melissa 
Brandt, a love story inspired by KING LEAR, and he's writing a comedy 
about Christmas shopping. Gordy Hoffman founded the BlueCat 
Screenplay Competition in 1998 and remains its sole judge.

To read Gordy's essays on screenwriting, visit visit http:// .

This workshop will consist of 12 writers each submitting ten pages of 
a work in progress in advance. We will go over each work 
individually, reading the pages aloud, while discussing the specific, 
unique challenges each writer is facing on the page.

This discussion will include the technical aspects of description and 
dialogue, the depth and reality of the characters, and how the ten 
pages reflect where the entire story goes.

The intimate, focused interaction with fellow writers in the workshop 
will provide all with a greater understanding of the work that lies 
ahead on their screenplay, and more importantly, a detailed sense of 
how they might develop as writers themselves.

Audit Option
Do you want to participate in the workshop, but do not have a 
screenplay to submit? You can elect to audit a workshop, where one 
can attend without submitting written material while participating in 
the discussion. The fee to audit a workshop is $45.
