Advanced Screenwriting

ENGL 130.401
Wednesday 2-5:00

This is a workshop-style course for students who have completed a screenwriting class, or have a draft of a screenplay they wish to improve. Classes will consist of discussing students' work, as well as discussing relevant themes of the movie business and examining classic films and why they work as well as they do.


Classic and not-so-classic screenplays will be required reading for every class in addition to some potentially useful texts like What Makes Sammy Run?
