Just when you think your screenplay is completed, the rewriting process begins. The focus of this course is improving the first draft, polishing the material for submission to potential agents, producers, directors, or production companies. Emphasis is on practical principles for rewriting, clarifying dramatic structure, and sharpening dialogue. You also learn how to listen and respond to script notes, collect information on screenplay contests, and navigate the screenplay marketplace.
