Online | Writing for Television: Crafting a Stellar TV Pilot

VIDEO: This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom).

All Levels | Do you have a great idea for a TV show? Do you want to learn the basics of story structure, character development, and dialogue? This is the course for you. Learn to craft a TV pilot script and practice pitching your story. We’ll workshop ideas, develop scripts, and talk about ways to submit your stories. Reading and writing assignments will be fun and engaging, and we will spend some time in class functioning like a writers’ room to provide feedback and story development for our fellow students. Come prepared with your ideas. You’ll come away with a pilot script.

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.
