Want to learn how to write scripts for movies and television? In this screenwriting crash course, we’ll dive into the basic principles of writing for the big and small screens. We’ll learn what works for the pros, how to format a script, and how to adapt fiction for the screen. Then we’ll take a run at writing our own scenes. Join us, and see what goes on behind the camera!
