The next Screenwriting Workshop will be held on October 27th, 2022

The scriptwriting workshop for September is cancelled as we synch our new contract with Orange County with their Fiscal Year, which begins in October. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you on October 27th.

How It Works:

  • Register for the next workshop using the form above.
  • 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”.
