Scriptwriting course is for students who already have a basic understanding of story structure, dialog, and character development. In this class the student will learn to write full-length television scripts and will study the structure and conventions of writing the sitcom, sketch comedy, and hour-long dramatic scripts. Student work will be read aloud and workshopped, step by step, in a traditional writers table’ story conference procedure. Each student will leave the course with at least one full-length, polished script from one of the featured genres.
