The best TV shows are addictive, beckoning us to bring the characters into our homes or onto our devices, episode after episode.

As long as it hooks us. Each TV show...

Dialogue Writing Level 1 Two Day Intensive

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Gotham Writers' Workshop - Online Zoom Conference, New York, New York 00000

As Rhett tells Scarlett in the movie Gone With the Wind, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” (In the book version, there’s no “frankly.”) Either way it’s a good line, and you should give a damn about your dialogue. Dialogue is crucial to any kind of story—fiction, nonfiction, any kind of script. Bad dialogue can sink it like a...

Songwriting Level 1: 10 Week Workshop

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Gotham Writers' Workshop - Online Zoom Conference, New York, New York 00000

It happens in a darkened club. On a spotlit stage. Or behind the soundproof walls of a studio. A song unleashes its power and who knows where it’ll go? Songs fuel desire, inspire hope, break hearts, rock worlds, unite people, shake booties, turn blahs into blues, and sometimes make us feel as good as James Brown. All in a mere few minutes. If you...

Playwriting Level 1: 10-Week Workshop

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Gotham Writers' Workshop - Online Zoom Conference, New York, New York 00000

The lights in the theater dim, and a play begins. Nothing beats the intensity of actors sharing the same air as the audience. The laughs and gasps and tears happen live, on the spot. And a play can be staged anywhere, from an empty space surrounded by folding chairs to a plush Broadway house. A play will not soar in performance unless it’s great...

Stand-Up Comedy Writing Level 1: 10 Week Workshop

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Gotham Writers' Workshop - Online Zoom Conference, New York, New York 00000

Comics say it’s the greatest high. You step into the light, take a swig of water, pick up the mic, then reduce a crowd of people to a mass of helpless laughter. Sure, the risks are great—silence, heckling, humiliation—but on a good night a stand-up feels richer than Seinfeld and Rock combined. You “kill” or “die” depending on your material....

The Editor’s Eye Level I: Two Day Intensive

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Gotham Writers' Workshop - Online Zoom Conference, New York, New York 00000

Every writer needs a good editor to push the work to its best possible state. But your work won’t reach a professional editor unless it’s already in excellent shape. A dilemma, to be sure. That’s why you need to be a skilled editor of your own work. Perhaps your great ideas and stories are clouded by such things as clunky language, pallid verbs,...

Do you dream of seeing your work performed, up there, somewhere? A spellbinding movie. An addictive TV show. A gripping play.
