Event description
Shannan E. Johnson of The Professional Pen will take creatives through the process of turning their ideas into stories for the screen.

About this event

Every creative — from authors and bloggers to entrepreneurs — has a story to tell. We dream of our ideas coming to fruition and having a major impact on our audience. What if your idea could be adapted into a feature film that reached millions of people around the world?

In this 90-minute virtual workshop, Shannan E. Johnson of The Professional Pen will take creatives through the process of turning their ideas into stories for the screen, including learning the difference between an idea and a story, understanding the major story beats necessary for this visual medium of storytelling and participating in idea generation games followed by a Q&A Jam Session.

Tickets:

Early bird = $35 until Oct. 30

General admission = $50

This event is recorded and anyone who purchases a ticket will receive a video recap.

Tickets are nonrefundable. A Zoom link will be sent via email the day of the workshop. Registration closes at 5:30 p.m. EST on Dec. 2, 2021.
