Many writers benefit from the structure of a writing workshop to encourage them through their story-crafting process. Plus you receive the benefit of feedback and support from your peers and the instructor. Finally, you not only work your way through your story, you also learn proven principles and practices you may adopt and adapt on all future writing projects.
So if you’re ready to learn the ins and outs of prep-writing while wrangling one of your original stories, I have got a terrific writing workshop geared for you!

Scott leading Black List screenwriters workshop
Las Vegas, 2014
I am just returning from San Francisco and the latest Black List screenwriting workshop. Just like the others I have led this year in New York, Toronto, and Chicago, it was a remarkable experience. The Prep: From Concept to Outline workshop offers a similar opportunity: deep insight and learning, and the unique community of writers bonding through the shared story-crafting process.
For more information on the next Prep: From Concept to Outline workshop which begins Monday, October 26, go here.
Remember: You can take any of our workshops on a private one-to-one basis. Indeed, one popular approach is to combine Prep and Pages I: The First Draft which takes you from concept all the way through the first draft process. It’s not only a great way to work your way through the writing process and complete a first draft, guided along the way by Tom or myself, it also enables you to learn a proven, professional approach to prep and page-writing which you can adopt and adapt for all future projects.

“Screenwriting Master Class changed my life, and I wouldn’t be where I am as a writer without having taken these classes. I used to struggle to write every day. Now it’s something that just happens because Scott provided me with the tools I needed to learn the craft and helped me gain confidence in my writing. Scott cares about the success of each and every one of his students, and that’s what makes Screenwriting Master Class so special.”

As always, I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
