Online Writing Classes - Gotham Writers Workshop

If the purpose of film is to tell stories, then the screenwriter is the one who breathes initial life into the characters, worlds, and dramas unfolding on screen. It isn’t easy work, but with the power of the internet it is the kind of work that can be done from anywhere. The New York Film Academy recognizes the diverse needs, schedules, and goals of our aspiring screenwriters. We know that like all art forms, screenwriting is a learned craft.
