Learn How To Write a Script for TV
During NYFA’s 8-Week TV Writing Workshop, students are introduced to writing for television, learning the fundamental techniques of this exciting craft. Similar to our 12-Week Television Writing program, students within the eight-week, full-time program spend a majority of time writing, focusing on essential screenwriting concepts such as story, structure, character, conflict, story engines, and dialogue.
Studying under the supervision and mentorship of professional screenwriters, our screenwriting students work in a focused environment, which helps aspiring writers learn how to create a solid structure for their writing and meet creative deadlines. This is a full-time, in-person program.
