Spend eight weeks at Hugo House learning the basics of the screenwriter’s art. The class will look at examples from films such as Chinatown, The Thing, and Raising Arizona, and do in-class writing that includes feedback on screenplay ideas.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
