As a follow-up to the introductory workshop in June 2020, Screenwriting Fundamentals, this workshop is a more intense, in depth approach to screenwriting, allowing writers to bring their current screenplay projects, in whatever form they currently hold, for a one-on-one workshop. Elements of screenwriting such as structure, character development, dialogue, and description will be examined and improved. Attendees will listen in on each other’s workshops and ask questions that might benefit their own work. Attendance is limited to just six (6) people, so sign up early.

Travis Maruska received his MFA in screenwriting from Chapman University in 2006. Since then, he has written over a dozen screenplays, one of which was a semi-finalist in the Nicholls screenwriting competition (sponsored by the Academy of Arts and Sciences) as well as several quarter-finalist scripts. He has worked at the talent agency CAA, pitching script ideas to Katie Holmes and Jessica Beals, and was hired to write the screenplay FORMULA in 2007. He currently teaches screenwriting at Emerson College and Anna Maria College.
