January 20th - 25th, 2022
A week of group sessions, 1:1 feedback slots, and structured individual writing time led by writer/producer Naomi McDougall Jones!
Ever wish you could just put everything other than writing on pause for a week and simply immerse yourself in a structured creative process for your project? Want a teacher/mentor and a community of other students to do it with?
Join Naomi McDougall Jones and an intimate group of other screenwriters for a 6-Day Virtual Screenwriting Retreat to beat the summer slump with a dedicated, focused, creative leap forward on your script.
The session will begin with a one-on-one feedback meeting with you and Naomi to formulate a plan and goals for your re-write (or first draft). Each ensuing workday will be a combination of group sessions (including morning coffee hour and creative meditation, lunchtime chats, and nightcap process discussions), large chunks of time for individual writing, as well as the opportunity for one-on-one pages feedback sessions with Naomi each day (optional - as you prefer).
The class is designed for students to make it through a full first draft or re-write over the course of the 6 days. Exactly how much progress each student makes will, of course, depend on how much time they make in their schedule, their speed of writing, and whether they complete the recommended prep work (to be sent out two weeks prior to the start of the session).
