“Television Writing”

This two-part TV writing workshop will start with craft elements unique to the form, and end with students pitching original series ideas. The workshop will mirror the dynamic of a professional writers room, where the showrunner is in charge, yet the writers are full participants. Discussions will be lively, interactive, and always supportive. Ideas will be shared. Writing will happen. Followed by more ideas. And more writing. Writers rooms are fun and creative, yet focused and disciplined. Bring your ideas about TV. Everyone will be encouraged to share, write, learn, collaborate. And create.
