This course is designed for intermediate and advanced level students. If you are interested in a beginner's course in screenwriting, I highly recommend my creative writing program, geared towards understanding basic principles of writing.

Intermediate and advanced students will write and send in pages of their script. We will use our time as a workshop for delivering feedback and further developing a work-in-progress.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I accept my students regardless of gender, religion, sexuality, or race.

About Ian

Ian is currently obtaining an MFA in screenwriting from UGA under the mentorship of Holly Sorensen ("Step Up: High Water") and Christine Swanson ("Chicago PD"), alongside classmates including John Strauss ("There's Something About Mary") and Neil Landau ("Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead").
