Writing Is Rewriting
Location: online (via Zoom)
Saturdays 3pm – 6pm Pacific Time
Next dates: Jan. 15 – Mar. 5, 2022

Leader: Heidi Hornbacher

This workshop is for writers who are familiar with our methodology or have other screenwriting training, and who desire a supportive framework in which to complete a screenplay or launch a rewrite.

Over eight weeks we will dive deep into your film or television script, looking at it from different angles and putting it through enriching diagnostics. Our exercises and talks will give you a fresh perspective on your pages, so your story and characters develop layers and nuance. Each week we will also table-read a section of your script, so you can put your new tools to work. This workshop will take your craft to the next level, and we can celebrate your progress together.

Between sessions, we offer 1-to-1 time to help you with any individual questions or issues (a half hour each week).

The support doesn’t end there. After the workshop is over, you may take advantage of a Script Consultation for 50% off and our affordable Alumni Drop-In sessions, designed especially for those who need a little extra time to finish their draft.

Price: $490

A 5% discount applies for alumni of PageCraft’s Italy retreats or of a previous Writing is Rewriting workshop only.

How to Register: Please write to us at info@pagecraftwriting.com if you are interested. We will invoice participants through PayPal.

This workshop is open to previous PageCraft participants and clients, or other experienced screenwriters. We recommend that participants complete our Concept to Pages workshop prior to this one for a thorough grounding in our character and structure tools, which we will briefly review and build on in Writing Is Rewriting. If you are new to PageCraft, we will schedule a conversation to discuss your project and your writing background, as well as answer any questions you have.

Important Notes:

  • Cancellation Policy: 72 hours before the workshop begins, 20% of the registration fee becomes nonrefundable. If you must withdraw after that point, we will refund a pro-rated amount based on the number of sessions remaining, divided by the registration fee, net of the nonrefundable 20 percent. No refunds will be made if you cancel after the penultimate session.
  • PageCraft reserves the right to refuse service or remove participants from the workshop for any reason, including abusive or unkind behavior toward others.
  • Other than the registration fee (per the terms of our cancellation policy), PageCraft is not responsible for costs incurred by participants or prospective participants.
  • The discounted script consultation must be requested within 2 months of the final workshop session, and it must be for a version of the script created or rewritten during the workshop. Otherwise normal rates apply.
