What you'll learn in this screenplay class:

Award Winning Screenwriter Jacob Krueger Will Forever Change The Way You View Screenwriting.

Rather than imposing formulaic models from the outside, we teach you how to organically “grow” your script, from initial idea, to character, to scene, to act, to the movie you’ve always dreamed of writing.

Jump Start Your Writing.

Whether you’re a young writer picking up the pen for the first time, or an old pro looking to inject new life into your writing, this exciting four week workshop will teach you a whole new way of looking at the fundamentals, and help you integrate your artistic goals into your real world life.

A Special Emphasis On In-Class Writing.

Experience our mind opening in-class writing exercises, designed to get you writing and keep you writing. Under our careful guidance, you will learn how to get your creativity flowing at will, to create the kinds of scenes that you’ve always wanted to write.

A Community That Fuels Your Creative Fire.

Our groundbreaking approach to feedback fosters a close-knit community of fellow writers, whose only goal is to support you in yours. Together, you’ll discover a new form of feedback that keeps the focus on what really matters: your story and how you want to tell it.

Build A Writing Lifestyle.

This workshop will teach you more than just great writing. It will prepare you to make writing a permanent part of your life. Along the way, you’ll learn how to overcome writer’s block, self doubt, procrastination, and other obstacles to build the writing life you have always wanted for yourself.

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Question from anonymous
I am interested in taking the Screen play writing class. Wondering if I can bring my 5 month old to the class.
Answer from Elijah C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! If you’d like to attend with your 5 months old baby you can do so via our live online class. It’s a two-way video stream so you can fully participate and also step out if necessary without having to worry about distracting the other students.
Question from connie v.
Hi, I'll be out of town on one of the class dates, how can I make it up?
Answer from Anonymous
Hi Connie, Good news. If you’re going to be out of town or can’t attend live in NYC you can either join the class live online from anywhere in the world and participate just like you we’re in the room or watch free video on demand replays for a full month after the class ends. So even if you have to miss a class in person you won’t miss anything.
Question from Haina J.
Can I adapt these tools for a play as opposed to a screenplay? Should I join the class as a writer for the theatre? Thank you
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Haina! Absolutely! The students work with lots of playwrights in this class. Just remind the instructor at the first class and he'll include some additional information about playwriting. Hope this helps!
Question from Anonymous
I attended film school ten years ago and have a thorough understanding of screenplay basics but want to join a class that will help me develop an idea I have and provide an opportunity for me to get feedback from other aspiring writers. Is this class right for me?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! The instructor said, "Yes, we have had many film school graduates and professional writers take the class and have a great experience. But of course after the first session if it’s anything other than exactly what you need, come to talk to me and we will either get you into the right class or refund your money." Hope this helps!
Question from Joseph N.
Would anyone suggest this class for someone who has never written before yet is extremely interested? Would I be lost without any experience as a writer?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! You’ve got the perfect class. It’s intended for students with no experience at all!

Write Your Screenplay
Reviewed by Dan W. on 2/25/2020
I haven't been this inspired in ages. Jacob made the course work and eventual worth of the screenplay seem like something that I knew I should do but didn't know how to finish.

Inspiring, practical, encouraging. The kickstart you need.
Write Your Screenplay
Reviewed by Matthew D. on 2/8/2019
I have been around writing for a very long time from many perspectives, have degrees in writing and so on and within the first 15 minutes of class I started hearing things from Jacob that I had never heard anywhere. He is a brilliant teacher and the kind of person you just want to be around because I know he is changing not just my writing but my life in ways that I still have not even fully realized yet.

Write Your Screenplay
Reviewed by Anonymous on 3/29/2017
This is a great class for dispelling your fears as a writer and setting goals to tackle your next big project. He gives you the foundation to writing a good screenplay (movement, format, structure) and the habits you need to make it happen. What happens next, however, is up to you.
