In Screenwriting, here's your chance to finally turn that great idea into a screenplay! In this class you'll learn how to craft a logline, develop it into a 15-beat outline, and start writing your first draft.

 

Writing for Children is one of the most vibrant markets in publishing. But whether you're writing a picture book, chapter book for early readers, middle grade fiction, or young adult novel, you'll need to understand the specific expectations of your audience
