PAST 330 Screenwriting II for Writing for Theater and Media

Having mastered the basics of plot structure, dialogue, character, research and outlining in Screenwriting I, the student will write a first draft of a full-length screenplay----an adaptation of a short story, novel, myth, or traditional tale (source material must be approved by the instructor). Along the way, students will adhere to strict writing deadlines in addition to the firm structural imperatives that screenwriting demands, and engage in productive critique of each other's work. Works from this course, Playwriting II or Writing the TV Drama may be submitted to the BA directors for possible selection as a Senior Directing Showcase project.
