Workshops and Panels

Regularly Scheduled In-person Scriptwriting Workshops

We hold monthly scriptwriting classes in Orlando on the 4th Thursday of the month. For November and December, the workshops are held on the second Thursday of the month.

How It Works:

  • Have a pdf copy of your script pages ready (10 pages max).
  • A link to upload your pages to an online drive will be provided by email within 24 hours prior to start.
  • Everyone at the workshop will be able to read your script on their devices.
  • Script actions and headings are read by a narrator, character lines are read by an attendee as your script “comes to life”.
  • At the end of each script session, feedback and ideas for the writer are exchanged by the attendees.
  • Once the workshop is over, the link and the script pages will be removed.

This is a great way to gain helpful notes and feedback on your script so you can make those final “tweaks”. It is also a great way for actors to practice reading various character roles.
