We want to make your screenwriting journey as comfortable and successful as possible.
EXPERT MODELS: Every class is based upon an expert model. We’ve interviewed over 750 producers, 120 agents and managers, and over 100 A-list screenwriters to create models that work in today’s industry.
CLASS DELIVERY: Our Classes are delivered via email, private forums, and audio. and posted online in a private class forum between 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM Pacific Time.
ASSIGNMENTS: The purpose of assignments is to have you learn in a much deeper way. Each assignment comes with a deadline of 24 to 72 hours, depending on the nature of the assignment. Over time, you’ll get comfortable with deadlines and use them to be more creative. The deadlines are there to keep people moving forward. You are welcome to go at your own pace and there is no penalty for missing the deadline, but they help prepare you to work with producers who are constantly on deadline.
POSTING YOUR ASSIGNMENTS: Once you complete the assignment you post it in the private class forum and then you can look at how your classmates did the same assignment, it's a great way to learn!
LEARNING: ScreenwritingU creates their class with our proprietary model of “33 Ways People Learn” to make sure the learning experience can be life changing.
FEEDBACK: Feedback is just one way people learn, and sometimes actually shuts writers down. So we are careful about what feedback structures are designed into each program. Most of our classes focus on Advanced Peer Feedback Template, which helps you improve your project and get good at giving and receiving “industry notes” at the same time.
