Southampton, NY - July 2021

Sun, swim, WRITE!

This small immersive workshop will meet for 12 days and will include both group work and individual advisement.

In a clearly defined step-by- step process students learn how to create an ORIGINAL SERIES and write a pilot script.

After you design your series, you will learn how to brainstorm story ideas, structure an outline and write scenes with dialogue, all in a constructive, supportive workshop atmosphere. The class covers both comedies and dramas and is designed for both the beginning and experienced writer. Perfect for NY locals and out-of-towners looking for a script-cation.

It's a great chance to start a new pilot or advance the one you’re writing. As part of the Southampton Writers Conference there are dorms and good food available one mile from the ocean!

Plus there are Master Classes you can attend taught by amazing authors like Roger Rosenblatt, Marissa Silver and Matthew Klam.

You have to apply through Southampton Writers Conference but let me know if you’re interested and I can answer any questions you have and track your admissions for you.


All script consultations include scene by scene written notes and a 60 to 90 minute one-on-one meeting, in person or by Skype. Half-hour scripts - $1600. One hour scripts - $2500. Email for more details.
