Gotham Writers' Workshop

Gotham Writers' Workshop teaches more than 7,000 students every year how to tackle and tame the writing process in a creative learning environment. Professional writers help students to develop characters and generate ideas before a structured dialogue encourages classmates to comment on strengths and weakness, improving final drafts and abilities to stand up to playground bullies. Gotham also provides follow-up services and bolsters the communication skills of experienced writers, teenagers, and muffled mummies alike with private instruction and tips found in its book, Writing Movies.

Wonderful resource for writers at all levels, highly recommend Gotham.

The discussions were dynamic and I learned a great deal about the screenwriting craft, but also about the film industry
