Description

Picking up from part one of this course, I’ll provide a lecture on how to structure and format your script by providing a foundation for your story by using writing examples and clips from my work. By applying the materials you wrote from part one of this workshop I hope to:

  • Cultivate new and beginning storytellers with how-to’s, tools, and tips
  • Establish an environment where students feel safe to learn in a creative space
  • Inspire, motivate, and evoke thoughts to paper to help students find their authentic voice in script format

Writing a script can feel intimidating, trust me I understand. Remember, we all have to be a beginner at some point and there have been many times when I felt underqualified or inexperienced — but when a story is placed in your heart trust that you will learn everything you need to know as you go. You simply have to start. So do not talk yourself out of it and don’t back down because you have to do some work. It’s a part of the process. You made it this far, which means you’re halfway there.
