This 4-week course is a continuation of previous Screenwriting I courses offered by PFS. Writers will continue to write their scripts while learning and applying advanced story-telling techniques into their screenplays. The class is structured into one-third lecture / discussion and two-thirds round-table reads with each writer expected to bring in their work for critique and observation by their peers. Students also have the option to adapt a short story of their choice based on a selection of short stories handed out by the instructor.
