All online workshop start times are posted in New York time. You can lookup the time against your local time here.

Regularly Scheduled In-person Scriptwriting Workshops

We hold monthly scriptwriting classes in Orlando on the 4th Thursday of the month, holidays excepted.

How It Works:

  • Have a pdf copy of your script pages ready (10 pages max).
  • A link to upload your pages to an online drive will be provided by email within 24 hours prior to start.
  • Everyone at the workshop will be able to read your script on their devices.
  • Script actions and headings are read by a narrator, character lines are read by an attendee as your script “comes to life”.
  • At the end of each script session, feedback and ideas for the writer are exchanged by the attendees.
  • Once the workshop is over, the link and the script pages will be removed.

This is a great way to gain helpful notes and feedback on your script so you can make those final “tweaks”. It is also a great way for actors to practice reading various character roles.
