Focusing on narrative storytelling in an environment designed to simulate the world of the professional screenwriter, Screenwriting Fellows find their unique voices, while learning the essence of working as part of a creative team.

The heart of the Screenwriting program lies in the relationship between the Fellow and the exemplary faculty who serve as teachers and mentors, guiding and supporting each writer's development in an intimate workshop setting. In the core Screenwriting Workshops, Fellows grow as cinematic storytellers through critique and analysis of their work by faculty and peers.

The first year begins with an immersion in the production process in order for writers to learn how screenplays are visualized. Initially writing short screenplays — one of which will be the basis for a first year production — Screenwriting Fellows collaborate with Producing and Directing Fellows to see their work move from page to screen. By the end of the first year, Fellows write a feature-length screenplay.

Second year Fellows may develop for television in addition to writing theatrical films. They also have the opportunity to work closely with their peers from other disciplines, by either writing a script for second year thesis projects or by participating with Directing and Producing Fellows in developing thesis portfolio material
