English Calr. Dramatic Screenwriting II

Terms: Spring Term

Tuesdays, 1-4 pm | Location: TBA

Enrollment: Limited to 12 students.

We’ll examine films and screenplays in order to develop the skills necessary to write the first draft of a feature-length script. We’ll begin by honing our treatments and outlines, and move on to critiquing specific scenes in our own work and in produced screenplays, with a rigorous focus on character, dialogue, tone, structure, plot, and voice.

Supplemental Application Information: In your letter of application, please answer the following questions:

What creative writing or film courses have you taken at Harvard or elsewhere?

Describe in one paragraph the film you’d like to write this semester.

As a writing example, please include what you consider to be the best scene you’ve ever written. It doesn’t matter if it’s one page or ten. If you want to include a few scenes, that’s fine, but limit your submission to ten pages (correctly formatted).

Apply via Submittable (by 11:59pm on 1/22, no exceptions)
