(Film Co-op Members are required to take at least one screenwriting course before they direct/produce their own dramas through the Film Co-op)

Whether beginner or advanced, this workshop will discuss story shape, structure and style for the screen and the ways a writer can conquer each, no matter genre, length or medium.
