WW Recap: October 5

Hey champions,

Thank you so much for coming out last night to the Writers’ Workshop! We had a great turnout and I hope you all enjoyed the discussion/workshop! You make my dreams come true.

Just to recap: Sarah Brill gave a presentation on Story Structure to include: beat sheets, differences between feature and short structure, and example short films (see below for all content). After that, we workshopped Pryianka Shah’s Stuck and had a baller time with that as well. Thanks, Priyanka, for letting us read your work! Please join us next week for a superb discussion on Character, led by Devin Dent, and our workshop of Christopher Wilkins’ The Main Course. It’s going to be transcendental.

Also, I’ve been watching this YouTube channel today that mostly discusses toxic masculinity in media and I find it really interesting so I’m going to share it: https://www.youtube.com/user/rebelliouspixels/videos

Super inspired to write but have no ideas at all? Here’s a prompt just for you: Write about a piece of jewelry. Who does it belong to?

 

Best,

Kenny Severson
