6-Week Fall Workshop
Starting Monday, September 22 , 2014

If you’ve ever thought that you have a screenplay in you, now is the time to reach in and start to pull it out in the SCREENWRITING I workshop led by Rockport’s own Jean-Paul Ouellette, an accomplished writer, producer and director (and teacher at Emerson College).

Topics that will be covered in this introductory 6-session workshop include the question of why films get made (it’s the story, silly!), how to grab and hold an audience, how to find your artistic voice and how to plan out an effective and meaningful script. Workshoppers will work on developing their own ideas into effective “treatments” – the first stage of good screenwriting.

Class size is limited.

A Netflix subscription is suggested, as is the book SCREENPLAY by Syd Field (available at The Bookstore of Gloucester).

Workshop sessions will be held on Monday evenings from 6:00pm to 9:00pm starting September 22, 2014. The rest of the workshop dates are: SEPTEMBER 29, OCTOBER 6, OCTOBER 20, OCTOBER 27, and NOVEMBER 3.

All workshops will be held at The Hive, located at 11 Pleasant Street, Gloucester.

Tuition for this non-credit course is $150.00.
