This workshop-style course will introduce students to the fundamentals of screenwriting, including the basic tenets of classical dramatic structure and storytelling strategies. Writing exercises, screenplay reading assignments, and in-class readings of each other’s work will help students develop scripts that have a sound narrative structure, are attentive to character and emotion, and are conducive to visual media. Each student should, by the end of the semester, have at least thirty pages of a screenplay completed.
