Screenwriting Scribes

Screenwriting Scribes will provide teens with the opportunity to delve into the art of screenwriting: film, television, audio drama, and more. Over this week long camp, which features field trips and special guests, young writers will explore the process of writing for the screen: from hatching characters and story ideas, to crafting captivating dialogue. Screenwriting is often a collaborative form, so young writers in this camp will combine forces on certain projects, while completing others on their own. All skill levels welcome.

A former fellow of the Independent Film Screenwriters Lab, Screenwriting Scribes instructor Peter Mountford has written scripts for the likes of Danny Glover and James Franco, and an audio play he wrote in 2016 was translated and produced for German radio.
