Event description

Description

Is 2018 the year you're going to nail your awesome screenplay?

Want to crank out a note-worthy first draft with confidence?

Then you need a kick-ass plan.

You can waste time writing in circles or you can get professional advice and get the story bones of your screenplay right before you start writing.

Do I really need to do that?

No, you don't, BUT launching into a screenplay without a story map or a hooky, cinematic premise is a sure fire way to waste months, if not years, of your time rewriting and rewriting as you try to fix the holes you could have avoided in the first place.

JUMPSTART is a fun one-day workshop that gets your screenplay up and running faster. It gets your writing underway, gives you confidence and clarity about your idea - and a plan to stay on track.

This is a one-day investment in your writing career that you won't regret.

Facilitator: Kathryn Burnett (Read Bio)
