What you'll learn in this writing class:

So you have a great concept that you think would make an awesome kid’s TV show or a brilliant idea for a play that you want to write for young audiences—what should you do before you put pen to paper? Cusi Cram and Peter Hirsch, award-winning veterans of both children’s TV and theater for young audiences (with credits including “Arthur”, “Curious George”, and “The Octonauts”), will walk you through the nuts and bolts of dramatic storytelling for kids and share their intimate knowledge of this business. There is a huge demand for quality scripts written for young audiences, but too often the material available to young audiences is cliché, preachy, and downright poorly-written. Come away from this 2-day workshop with the tools to write compelling scripts targeted toward children and teens and an understanding of how to break into this expanding and lucrative world.
