TV writing classes I'm teaching for the UCLA Extension Writers' Program:
7pm-10pm Thursdays, April 13 - June 15, 2017, in downtown Los Angeles.
Learn how to take your original idea for a one-hour drama pilot and develop a strong "hook," break the story into acts, and create powerful character arcs and voices. Breaking story in the style of a real writers' room, you learn how to develop a compelling story, brainstorm, and support another's vision. By the end of the course, you have strong act breaks, a full beat outline, and a critique of the first 10 pages of your original spec pilot script.
Registration: NOW OPEN!
All classes provide notes, feedback, and help on students' works-in-progress in a constructive and supportive workshop setting that mimics the freewheeling creative collaboration of a professional TV writers' room, whiteboards and all.
