SCWR 406: The Art of Scene Writing (Formerly DC 445)

Due to COVID-19, Spring in-class sections will be conducted online. Please contact your instructor for more information.

This advanced course asks students to move beyond convention in an effort to deconstruct the core elements of a scene: location, subject, conflict, and exposition. Through weekly lectures, writing exercises, and workshops we will examine a number of innovative screenwriting techniques to refine the writer's unique voice and enhance the commercial viability of their work.
