NEW ENG 212 Screenwriting Workshop (3 cr)
Students get to work on an adapted screenplay and an original screenplay along with viewing movies and reading cool screenplays like "Little Miss Sunshine" It is a writing intensive course but where else do you have the opportunity to essentially create the blueprint for a movie? I also love the discussions the students get to have that may not happen in real life. When they do an adapted screenplay, they will be adapting a fiction story written by someone in the class. It is so cool to be a part of the class discussion with the original fiction author and the screenwriter.
