New instructor-led NYC screenwriting group, now open!

By popular demand, enrollment is now open for the seventh session of my new, private screenwriters' group, Blueprint Screenwriting Group. This is for screenwriters who are serious about writing every week AND finishing their pilot or feature script.

With a class size of 8 or fewer, individual attention is given to each student as I help you work through outlining, character building, story development, conflict enhancement, and much more. Instructor-led exercises, creative criticism, and group contributions are used to finalize polished products and bring them to the market. Highly personalized focus is given to:

  • Reaching realistic but aggressive draft deadlines
  • Identifying and honing each writer's individual voice
  • Marketability in structure and casting
  • Brainstorming to expand the writer's tool kit
  • Clarity in theme and delivery
  • Concise, multilayered dialogue
  • Upending tropes within genres
  • Building surprising story twists
  • Thoughtful career-building
  • Workshopping via read-throughs

New writing, specific to each screenwriter's project, is due each week and workshopped in class.
