Advanced Screenwriting

June 28 - August 30, 2022

7 PM - 9 PM EDT

Screenwriting, also called scriptwriting, is the art and craft of writing scripts for videos, feature films, or television productions. A writer can create a script that is based on an original idea, or they can create a script from a concept, true story, or an existing literary work, such as a novel, poem, play, comic book or short story, that they have the rights to adapt. A screenplay by itself is not a final product; it is used as a blueprint during the video production process by the director to craft their vision for the story.

Advanced Screenwriting is a monthly meetup where experienced screenwriters can drop in to receive feedback on their work. This workshop runs from June to August with monthly meetups on the last Tuesday of each month. Priority will be given to those who have not yet received feedback on their work. Participants are expected to bring a completed script to the first session.

Participants must have previously completed one of our screenwriting workshops in order to register. For more information please contact us.

We aspire to be a platform for creative support and community building through active participation and exchange of knowledge.

Who Is Eligible to Register for Workshops?

Workshops are open to Digital Arts Resource Centre members and the general public engaged in the creation of non-commercial, independent productions and work (Non-commercial, independent productions are productions for which the director retains copyright and artistic control, and for which the production is neither being produced for a client nor for the purpose of advertising or promotion).

Who Is Ineligible for Workshops?

Digital Arts Resource centre does not offer our workshops to persons employed by any government body or any major corporation if the resources are being used to facilitate benefit for one’s employer or for corporate professional development within one of these kinds of organizations. Our workshops are heavily subsidized as they are available only for independent artists/learners who cannot typically afford to take corporate rate workshops. You can find non-subsidized workshops from our friends at SPAO or Henry’s.
