The Professional Certificate Program in Screenwriting is a one-year online screenwriting workshop that allows students the advantage of working closely with a produced screenwriter, in a real-time, collaborative workshop format. In doing so, students will also gain a greater understanding of the building blocks on which all film and TV writing are based - fresh, inventive concepts, compelling characters, escalating conflict, dialogue with subtext and dramatic structure.
Upon completion, students will have a completed screenplay and an official Certificate of Completion, signifying their extensive effort towards becoming a Professional Screenwriter.
Our intent is to inspire you to observe the world around you and to mine your own experiences, to discover your voice, personal vision and passion to create compelling stories with dynamic characters. No matter what aspect of the creative industry you ultimately wind up having a career in - whether it be film and television, publishing, design; or a professional path of a different sort - much of your success will come from your ability to understand and implement these principles of effective storytelling.
