Advanced Workshops in Screenwriting and Writing for Television

Advanced Workshops

If you have met the requirements to enroll in an advanced workshop, you may call the Professional Programs office directly at 310.825.6124 to request an enrollment form.

We announce our advanced workshops about six weeks before each quarter begins here on this page and on our private alumni page. Enrollment is first-come, first-served.

In an Advanced Workshop, students may either rewrite a script they have already completed, or write an entirely new script within the 10-week quarter. Students meet once per week for three hours to participate in an intensive round-table analysis of their work. The Advanced Workshops, like the workshops in the Professional Program, are modeled after the MFA screenwriting program's "434" class. Designed by former MFA Screenwriting Chair Lew Hunter and current Co-Chair Richard Walter, Advanced Workshops are limited to no more than eight students per class (online) and ten students per class (on campus) and are led by professional writers.

Students who successfully complete three Advanced Workshops receive a certificate of completion. Workshops do not have to be taken consecutively in order to receive the certificate.
