We know that like all art forms, screenwriting is a learned craft. That is why we developed our Online Screenwriting School, to allow students to undergo a transformative process as they learn first-hand from prolific industry professionals — online — in their own timeframe. Advanced workshops will require that students meet application requirements and begin class with projects already underway.

Rather than gathering in a traditional classroom, students and instructors interact electronically, resulting in increased access for students by allowing them to control the time and place of their participation.

Weekly classes are held through message board and video downloads, with feedback provided by the instructor between sessions. A live Skype option may be available depending on the timezone of the student. Video lessons will be made available for download or stream. Written lessons and assignments are posted for critique and the class interacts on an electronic course shell. Instructors are available electronically for support. Our online screenwriting workshops allow students to work independently and in groups, no matter where or when their schedules allow.

When students log on to our online school programs, they can: Complete coursework through electronic forums. Interact with their instructors and fellow students through electronic forums when and where they choose. Communicate online with classmates, instructors, and academic counselors.
