Write Over Here is a three-week hybrid screenwriting residency, that offers participants the opportunity to focus on tools to create the time and space to write from home and at Banff Centre through online and in person programming.

Intermixed with faculty to support their practice as required, participants will meet with the cohort online for the first week, and on campus for the following two weeks. These will include daily gatherings, where we share readings, workshops, deeper discussions around process, and Q&A sessions. 

What Does the Program Offer?

Writers will deepen their screenwriting artistry and technical application through faculty mentorship, podcast workshops, access to Screenwriting software, group discussions, and concluding Q and A sessions. 

The residency provides the opportunity for writers to build peer relationships and expand their professional networks to support and create collaborative opportunities in the future.

This is a self-motivated residency and encourages participants to discover best practices to engage and inspire writing to happen at home and away.

Working the Wound Screenwriting Workshops

City:

Learn the craft of screenwriting and originate complex protagonists whose personal arcs speak to the compelling and intersectional experiences of women, people of color, and/or the LGBTQ+ community. For writers of all identities.

Using this unique approach to the craft of screenwriting, Jenny Kleiman uses characters' misbehaviors and trauma (yes, in comedy too!) to develop complex story arcs. Specializing in plot problem-solving, these workshops will help you identify and hone your voice. Further, in an effort to combat and destroy familiar tropes previously reserved for women and minorities in cinema, these workshops are specific to developing and honing the inner narratives, experiences, and tribulations of minority leads.

This weekly workshop is an opportunity to create layered and complex characters to drive your feature or TV pilot. Over eight weeks, you will develop and workshop your idea with the focus and goal of FINISHING YOUR SCRIPT. ​ Modeled after a professional writers’ room, students will read each other’s work weekly to discuss, critique, identify, and learn story structure, this class is great for levels: beginners, intermediate, or professional writers looking to create great stories with compelling leads. ​

8-Week Sessions: $400. Next Session starts Tuesday, January 12, 2021 and runs weekly through February 30, 2021

Deadline: 
07/January/2021
