You will learn how to write strong and richly layered women characters as well as the nuts and bolts of writing scripts that sell. Enjoy a nurturing and open creative environment where you will have a chance to write your first script or develop a work-in-progress. You are encouraged to submit a short writing sample outlining your goals for the workshop. The instructor will guide you in achieving your personal scriptwriting goals.

The workshop is being presented by Reel Sisters, the first Academy Qualifying Festival for short narratives devoted to women filmmakers, and BRIC, the leading presenter of free cultural programming in Brooklyn, and one of the largest in New York City. BRIC presents and incubates new work by artists and media-makers who reflect the diversity that surrounds us.
