FINALLY, A PROFESSIONAL LEVEL SCREENWRITING COURSE MADE JUST FOR KIDS!

KIDS CAN WRITE FOR HOLLYWOOD

Several writers under the age of 18 have sold scripts to Hollywood or have written books that have become Hollywood movies. We will get your young writer prepared to make their mark on the Hollywood writing scene.

WHAT YOU GET

Our Screenwriting Kids course walks students through the entire process of how to write a professional screenplay. Screenwriting Kids offers a comprehensive online screenwriting course for kids ages 10 to 17. Training includes basic, intermediate and advanced screenwriting concepts tailored for young writers new to the screenwriting process.

In our PREMIUM course, students learn at their own pace with ONE-YEAR access to online lessons including one-on-one instructor guidance for ONE-YEAR. This means that students in our PREMIUM course will have access to a PROFESSIONAL WRITING COACH for ONE-YEAR! By the end of the course, students will have completed a professional quality screenplay.

The courses are led by Debbie Wright, a professional television writer who has written for Disney and ABC Family. Debbie narrates the course and corresponds with students regarding assignments, quizzes and any questions or additional help they may need.

Each course includes:

  • instructional videos with movie clips from popular kids’ films
  • written assignments
  • quizzes and informational handouts that reinforce the course materials,
  • script consultation
  • professional script notes

Students get feedback on all of the work that they submit. We encourage our writers to explore their creativity and develop their own unique voice. We teach our students the art of crafting an interesting story that will capture an audience’s attention. Students also receive a script consultation and notes on their completed screenplays.
