TV Spec Writing (Wednesdays)

Enrollments Currently Closed

Have you ever wanted to learn more about TV Spec Writing? Now’s your chance!

Diversity writing fellowships and programs season has begun! The ABC/Disney Writing Fellowship, CBS Writers Mentoring Program, Warner Brothers Writers Workshop, and NBC Writers on the Verge all require specs of an existing show. So if submitting to any of these is on your 2019 vision board, this class is for you.

Over six weeks we will develop a beat sheet, outline and first draft of your spec and get you even closer to keeping your resolution this year.

This class is 6 weeks long and does not have a class show.
