Screenplay Development from the Inside Out
5-week online workshop

Begins October 26, 2011

Taught by Rona Edwards and Monika Skerbelis, authors of the critically acclaimed film book, "I Liked It, Didn't Love It: Screenplay Development from the Inside Out" now in its 2nd Edition.

Rona and Monika's knowledge and instruction improved my story development skills and opened opportunities that I otherwise would not have had the privilege to benefit from.
