And Scene! Screenplay Writing Seminar


Once you know the secret of how to construct a scene and its anatomy, you’re already a far better storyteller.

Scenes are the building blocks of narrative. Whether you write screenplays, fiction or nonfiction, once you know how to build a scene, you are far more able to play with time, pull the heartstrings of your reader, and feel a mastery over how you write.

In this 2-hour seminar, you will learn:

  • what constitutes a scene and to write a successful one
  • how to use a scene to set up the next and play scenes off one another
  • how to use a simple goal to create a series of interconnected scenes called a sequence.

Master the construction of scene, and you’re in the story’s driver’s seat!

Out of stock

In this seminar, we’ll talk about how to construct a story from the blank page. It starts with the scene – the building block of a screenplay. You will learn about what constitutes a scene and how to make one successful. Then we will learn how to use one scene to set up the next or use one scene to play off another. Finally, we will learn how to use a simple goal to create a series of interconnected scenes called a sequence.


Seminar Format

The online seminar is fully interactive and takes place via live video conference (which is recorded, so you can watch it on replay). During the seminar, you’ll have ample opportunity to share your work, talk through and practice craft issues, and ask questions about the genre.

Assignments, readings, and video clips will guide you on your screenplay writing journey.
