This is Micharne’s first Festival as a participating writer and she will be offering the Writing Workshop, “PLOTTING THE TV EPISODE”.
Workshop for :
PLOTTING THE TV EPISODE
Within the structural demands of writing for television, and especially network television, are lessons on drama, pace, holding an audience’s attention and storytelling in general.
In a 2-hour class the workshop leader will unpack as many of these lessons as possible through plotting a one-hour drama pilot as a group.
At the end of the workshops, participants will have the basic skills to be able to plot a TV episode, and to have new thoughts on storytelling in general that they can then apply to their writing in any form.
