You’ll develop your story muscles in one action-packed day, and walk away armed with an understanding of what it takes to be part of the writing team on a successful continuing drama.
Learn what goes on inside the story office, including how to storyline, beat, scene-by-scene and weave together multiple story strands. With practical advice and real-world insights, you’ll get a solid framework to help you develop your next project and give you the edge in the competitive world of TV drama.
