Join the Webinar (members only)

This hands-on, step-by-step webinar will take participants through the components of an effective scene, why each is important, and how to spot (and correct) weaknesses. A framework, with examples, will be used to illustrate each element of scene structure. Together, we will examine some scenes that work—and some that don’t. Participants will be given practical tools that they can apply to their own scenes-in-progress—during the workshop if time permits.
