ABOUT the program
The Moving Picture Institute offers virtual screenwriting workshops throughout the year. Led by our executive vice presidents, Erin O'Connor and Maurice Black, these 13-week "virtual" workshops enable screenwriters to hone their craft by workshopping their original scripts in a supportive and high-level setting.
