Extensive Writing Workshop

Arnold Edwards will be heading a writing workshop.

The workshop will be six weeks long and cost $50 per person.

Where does this money go? Well the fee pays for the location at the
First Congo Church (Co-op) for 6 days. It pays for all handouts and
materials purchased for the workshop. It pays for all media materials
(disks, etc.) used to provide participants software, and it pays for any
additional needs for the workshop.

What do you get:

  1. A structured workshop designed to teach you scriptwriting, where your first draft (90-120 pages) should be finished by week 5.
  2. Instruction of format, character development, analyzing a scene, writing good dialogue, etc
  3. Critique of your script by your peers
  4. Guidance in getting your draft copyrighted
  5. Class and personal instruction on script writing, ensuring you get what you want from the workshop
  6. And the list goes on and on..... leading to A GREAT SCRIPT!

Honestly I believe this workshop is good for anyone, even people who
would consider themselves accomplished script writers.

Slots are filling up fast (I want to keep the class small to make sure
everyone gets the instruction they need). If you are interested
contact me now!

Classes will begin within the next few weeks. For more information, please contact Arnold Edwards at kugar13@gmail.com.
