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 lecture from your host on different screenwriting topics. Then your host will give each writer 20-30 minutes of personalized feedback on their 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 submissions or new material. Each writer can workshop up to 4 scripts in one month!
Each writer can email the host during the week so they are fully guided for the entire month.
