Aspiring authors and would-be screenwriters now have a new Lifelong Learning course to choose to improve their writing and storytelling techniques.
Have you ever walked out of a film and said, “I can do better than that.” Do you have a drawer full of abandoned manuscripts? Or are just interested in giving screenwriting a shot? Wherever you are in your screenwriting or book writing career, this course works specifically on writing skills to help take your efforts to the next level, with an emphasis on structure, plot and formatting. Each class begins with a discussion of an element of writing, followed by critiques of student work.
This workshop is taught by Craig Weeden, an award-winning author and screenwriter. He has published books and short stories for both adults and children and earned accolades for his screenplays.
Weeden, who has a master’s in English and a master’s in Fine Arts in Creative Writing, has published in over 100 literary and general magazines. He’s listed in the Directory of American Poets and Fiction Writers and the International Who’s Who in Poetry. Weeden has ghosted fiction and non-fiction. His middle-grade novel, Mia’s Gift: A Muzzles the Manatee Story, co-authored with his wife, has won three national awards. And his screenplays have earned “Recommend” from one of Hollywood’s most highly regarded coverage services.
Eight-session course is $59.
