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 Mark on different screenwriting topics. Then Mark will give each writer 20-30 minutes of personalized feedback on their pages (which he 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 Mark during the week so they are fully guided for the entire month.
