How to Become a Screenwriter

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a screenwriter? Do you want to tell stories and make people feel things? Are you a creative person who’s always been told “you should write a screenplay!” but have no idea where to start?

If so, we’ve got the perfect opportunity for you! Our screenwriting enrichment program is designed to give students the tools they need to write and sell their own original scripts. We’re not just talking about learning how to write dialogue or create compelling characters—we’ll teach you everything from story structure to pitching your work in person.

In this program, you’ll be introduced to the exciting process of writing for the screen, where character, action, plot, and setting are key. You will explore the fundamental elements of screenwriting through writing exercises and weekly live virtual workshop sessions, and develop original ideas into a complete short screenplay through writing exercises. Final written screenplays can be included in your professional portfolios!

The program begins the week of October 24th, 2022, and ends on December 4th, 2022. It is a 5-week program that can be taken by 8th-12th graders working on a computer or laptop.
