Atlanta Film Society presents Writing from the Heart Developing the Short Screenplay


Please note that this class will be held online every Wednesday from July 14th through August 25th from 7-9 pm EST. Registrants will receive an email with online access instructions for this class before the class start date. If you have any questions, please email emma@atlantafilmsociety.org.


Do you have dreams of becoming a screenwriter? Maybe you have a story or an idea that you can see in your mind? If you aspire to put pen to paper, find your voice, and bring it to the screen, then this is the class for you.


If you ever wanted to live out your dreams of writing for film. Have a short story stuck in your head, or a developing screenwriter with a half-written screenplay in your attic, then Writing from the Heart - Developing the Short Screenplay will help you complete your short script from start to finish in 7 weeks. Along the way, this class will also assist you in developing your authentic voice while telling powerful stories that are palpable to your audience.


The course will cover basic screenplay structure, story structure, character development, and the power of the writer's voice. Class time will also give room for feedback with your instructor breaking down your screenplay and truly helping you discover the light within your story. Scheduled one-on-one time, drop-in guests, and insight from your peers will round out the course.


At the end of the 7-week course, you will have a completed short screenplay, a concise voice from the writer, and a staged online reading of your story. The staged reading would be performed by actors and open to family, friends, and industry professionals. You will also receive a recording of your reading to keep.
