Description
This session will introduce new screenwriters to some of the fundamentals of building a screenplay. The primary focus of the workshop will be on story structure and how that affects the development of a screenplay. Students will also be introduced to topics such as character development and basic formatting. 
This workshop will be a valuable starting point for anyone looking to get started in screenwriting.
 
This session will not provide instruction on how to use screenwriting software, but may involve the use of Celtx, which is a well-regarded writing tool with a free version available. Understanding of how to use Celtx (or any other software) will not be required to understand the workshop content.
