21st January 2011

Big Smoke Writing FactoryThe Big Smoke Writing Factory is running Screenwriting: A Two-Day Course in Writing and Rewriting Key Scenes with Mary Kate O Flanagan from 10am-5pm on February 5th and 6th, 2011. It costs €190.

This course teaches writers of drama to invest their scenes with dramatic tension and increase audience involvement in the story.

It will also look at visual storytelling to enhance or replace dialogue as a means of telling a story.

It will examine how a classic scene is constructed and practise writing key scenes, such as:

Scenes of preparation
Scenes of aftermath
Scenes of seduction
Scenes of introduction

Writers can bring along scenes from works in progress or invent scenarios for the purpose of the course. There will be a lot of interactivity so places are limited to ten.
