When pitching your screenplay, the importance of an effective logline cannot be overstated. This single sentence is the lens through which your audience will be viewing every single piece of information they subsequently receive. It's also often the only opportunity you as the writer has to explain your project in your own words. While the logine occupies few words, it is for that very reason that every. word. counts.
In this Logline Clinic, you will learn actionable, easy formulas for composing your loglines that you can apply to every project you write for the entirety of your screenwriting career. And a handful of volunteers will receive personalized feedback live to help everyone's logline really shine!
To be considered for review with live feedback, submit 1 logline to firstname.lastname@example.org by 4:00pm PT on Tuesday 5/25. Loglines submitted after that time will not be accepted.
This session will be recorded so if you sign up but can't make it live, you will receive the recording 48 hours later!
