CRW 401/800 MWF 12:40-1:35 322 Marano CC

CRW 201/830-This introductory course explores the screenwriting genre as it applies to a visual medium.  Students will engage in writing exercises to learn the elements of story, character development, structure, scene study and dialogue.  Students will also analyze professional screenplays, learn to pitch and write their own short film script. No prerequisite.

CRW 300/800-This large-lecture course explores the creative process via a series of talks presented by writers across the genres and may include other members of the writing community (editors, librarians, publishers). Students develop their own values and aesthetics, and articulate them through exercises and assignments; participants become acquainted with the challenges, practices, and rewards of “the writing life.” Open to all Oswego State students.

CRW 401/800-Writers need deadlines.  I personally know this to be true.  This course will require that you write a complete feature screenplay.  This process will be facilitated by lectures, in class assignments, and small and large group workshops.  You will pitch ideas, break your story into a beat sheet, get immersed in character development and finally write a feature screenplay.  In addition, we'll have discussions about working in the Hollywood "industry" and you will learn to write script coverage.  Prerequisite: CRW 301
