About the Class:
You have ideas for sketches, characters, shows, movies, webseries and more. Have you written anything yet? Have you gotten the people together? We all get overwhelmed by the steps in the creative process, but this group discussion will help encourage you to make a plan for whatever it is you are working on. Using a roundtable writer's room set-up, this workshop will demystify and make real what it takes to get your work done. This class emphasizes collaboration and building your team that will help hold you accountable. We'll see to it you set goals to accomplish in one week, the next month, in a year and beyond!
