WORKING THE WOUND
Originate complex protagonists whose personal arcs speak to the compelling and intersectional experiences of women, people of color, and/or the LGBTQ community.
For writers of all identities.
Using this unique approach to the craft of screenwriting, Jenny Kleiman uses characters' misbehaviors and trauma (yes, in comedy too!) to develop complex story arcs. Specializing in plot problem-solving, these workshops will help you identify and hone your voice. Further, in an effort to combat and destroy familiar tropes previously reserved for women and minorities in cinema, these workshops are specific to developing and honing the inner narratives, experiences, and tribulations of minority leads.
All workshops run for 8 weeks via Zoom (link provided after purchase). Payment is due in full two weeks before 1st session. 50% refunds available if cancellation occurs 7 days before 1st session, but no money will be refunded past this grace period. There are no credits or make-up workshops. I limit each time slot to 8 students, so in the case of no availability, we will open a waitlist or schedule another time slot if enough students are available.
Payment is due in full before script consultation begins. Please indicate your choice of feedback via notes or call/ Skype session. Each half-page or 30 minutes of notes past the original included time will be $25.
Calls will be scheduled or notes will be delivered within 7 days (you will get an email to confirm script receipt).
Rush service is available based on my availability at an additional $50.
