Writers Workshop Open to Writers and Filmmakers

Hi Jade Castle friends! 

Are you a writer in the Upstate? 

Are you looking to connect to other writers for networking and critique? 

Have you written a screenplay that needs a polish?  

Got an idea for a screenplay ... now what?  

Already a great film maker and want to be a better story teller?

This Writer’s Workshop is designed to help you, wherever you are, get where you want to be.

Students in this class will develop skills concerning story, plot, theme, and character development by focusing on how to tell a story in visual terms.  We will also examine films from a professional screenwriters point of view.  We will look into the problems screenwriters face and the tools they have at their disposal to solve these problems.  In short, this class will familiarize you with the common language professionals use to communicate their ideas in the development and production of feature films - the language of cinematic storytelling.
