Big Smoke Screenwriting

23rd August 2010 by Maura McHugh

Big Smoke Writing FactoryThe Big Smoke Writing Factory is running a Screenwriting Course, taught by Mary Kate O Flanagan.

Developing an idea through craft

This ten-week course will go over the fundamentals of screenwriting as applicable to works in progress. Participants are invited to attend with a premise they’d like to develop, an outline or an early draft. We will be looking at defining the main narrative drive of a movie and building the beats of the story from there.

The approach taken will be based on understanding how a writer’s choices affect an audience’s experience. There will be writing exercises in class as well as some light home assignments. These are designed to give writers a greater command of craft and help them shape their stories effectively.

The course fee is €350, and classes take place every Thursday from 6.30pm-9.30pm, starting September 16, 2010.

Information on how to apply for the course is on the web site.
