Join us for this single day workshop where you will learn the basics of writing for TV.

This introductory level class will take you into the writer's room to introduce you to the team, processes, and creativity behind the design and development of a story.
Come to the workshop with an idea you would like to pitch, get feedback, refine your idea, and learn about what goes on in the writer's room. Following the workshop, pitches will have the option to be submitted to the Film Consortium SD for further review and consideration.
This workshop will focus on teaching you:
1. What is a television writers room and who is in the writers room?
2. How to work in the writer's room.
