Screenwriter, Daniel Wells | Hands-on Development Session
June 29, 2020, 7 PM - 8:30 PM
Zoom Meeting Room opens at 6:30 PM
Development is the stage in screenwriting before a creative project goes into production, but the development process applies to any creative project. Planning is preparing; to define an audience, a plotline, a character flaw, etc. In this hands-on lecture, screenwriter Daniel Wells will take writers through a checklist of ten developmental steps towards a creative project, and we’ll fill out a developmental document together for your current or future project.
How can I participate?
Be prepared to jot down a few notes or questions that may come to mind. Kick-off your shoes and relax, because this meeting is provided through Zoom. There is no need to have a Zoom account, but if you have an account, please make sure to update it to the latest version. Instructions on how to join the meeting will be provided after you have registered.
What if my question doesn’t get answered or if I have a question after the session?
Stay tuned for information on a fun and interactive follow-up discussion with Daniel Wells and other fellow writers. More details to come after the June 29 Zoom meeting!
