Plotting and Planning – Pat Carr

Are You Writing a Short Story or a Novel?

Screenwriting – Carole Parker

Rogers: Schlotzkey’s, 2709 W Walnut St, Rogers, AR

Ever had a great idea for a movie — but didn’t know how to write a screenplay?  This workshop will cover the nuts and bolts of the craft, how the biz works, what’s selling in Hollywood – and what’s not.

We’ll study story structure, outlining, and how to get your screenplay started on the right foot. Then we’ll talk about how to get an agent.  Not an academic theory class, this workshop will be spiced up with insider tips galore.
