CCRWT 3001 Advanced Scriptwriting

This course is a continuation of CCRWT 2090 The Art and Craft of Scriptwriting, and is meant for students with a serious interest in and aptitude for the genre. Students will advance their understanding of the form through continued study of master works, regular writing assignments focusing on specific issues of craft, and regular in-class writing workshops, receiving and offering informed critique. Students will have the opportunity to work for much of the semester on conceiving, drafting, revising, and shaping one, full-length dramatic work, encountering and learning to solve challenges associated with writing full-length pieces, including common third-act problems, character development/growth, and tone consistency issues.
