Group Mentorships meet online via virtual classroom utilizing video conferencing software ZOOM.
Limited to only 5 writers, this Group Mentorship will meet virtually once a week for 4 weeks for 2 hours a session. Each Group Mentorship will start with a short discussion with your host on different screenwriting topics. Then your host will give each writer 20-30 minutes of personalized feedback on their submitted pages (which they will have reviewed prior to the session). Each writer will learn from their own feedback and the feedback given to their peers.
Every week writers can bring in their revised pages or new material. Each writer can workshop up to 4 scripts in one month!
And writers can email the host during the week so you are fully guided for the entire month.
After registering, you will receive an Order Confirmation via email that serves as your receipt for the class. In the Order Summary section of this email will be a link reading "CLICK HERE FOR INSTRUCTIONS" that will take you to information on submitting your material and joining the session each week.
You may cancel for a full refund up to 72 hrs. prior to the start of the class. Cancellations requested after this deadline will be ineligible for refunds.
