Screenwriting Workshop

ENGL 116.601

Screenwriting workshop will introduce students to the writing of dramatic screenplays, while also considering how film storytelling differs from other forms. The course will concentrate on two fundamental issues: 1) how screenplays balance dramatic and narrative perspectives, and 2) how screenplays suggest the internal life of characters. In addition to readings and script analysis, students will complete a number of creative exercises and several draft of a short screenplay.
