I’ve thought about this for a while, but I finally decided to run an online sitcom spec writing workshop. The main reason to write a spec script these days is so you can apply to the different writing fellowships. I know how to write a good spec. I wrote spec scripts that got me into the NBC Writers on the Verge program and the Nickelodeon Writing Fellowship, and I’ll take you through the same process that I used.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We’ll go over everything from beginning to end, including picking what show to spec, pitching and writing loglines, writing a synopsis, an outline, and then your draft. The goal is to have a new, polished spec ready to submit to contests and fellowships.
There will be weekly assignments, and you’ll be expected to read and have notes for everyone’s work in addition to working on your own writing.
Besides writing the spec scripts, we’ll also cover writing the bios for the various writing program applications, and preparation for the interview process.
Here’s a quick overview of the syllabus for the first 4 weeks:
What we’ll cover in the last 4 weeks:
The workshop will be online, so you’ll need a computer with a web cam and a high speed internet connection. All of the classes will be group video chats using Google+ which is free.
If you’re interested or have any questions, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please let me know what other specs you’ve written. Thanks.
