Section: 01  
Crosslisting: WRCT 263
Certificates: Writing

This advanced course requires that each student act as writer, producer/network executive as well as lead discussant on one of the professional scripts we read. Students will be responsible for 2 meetings with the professor during the semester, 2-3 meetings with their producing partners and one meeting with their actors (who will perform a short scene from the student's script at the end of the semester.) Each student will conceive of, and pitch three story ideas in the first classes, winnowing down to one idea for which they will write a story area, an outline and a final script (which will go through 3 major revisions). Students are expected to come to class with a background in creative writing, focusing on character and dialogue.
