Writing for a viewer and writing for a reader are different. In this workshop, we will talk about how to take the story you want to tell and structure it for the screen. We will address the screenwriting process as well as the differences between screenwriting and writing for the page. This workshop will provide a new perspective and can be useful for writers of both fiction and nonfiction.
