The address for the workshop is 2219 Main Street in Santa Monica. All attendees received followup email with the details yesterday, and they were also on the receipt right after you ordered. The workshop is sold out, but I'll be running it again. You can reach me at nancy@nancyfultonmeetups to find out when.


This is the perfect workshop for anyone who wants a fast, practical, pointed primer on writing a feature film screenplay. Whether you are someone with a great idea for a movie, or someone with a book you want to turn into a film, or a producer who wants to make their first production wholly their own.

In this workshop you learn where you can get free and cheap professional screenwriting software, the varying structures they can follow (3-Act, 9-Act, Heroes Journey), the relationship between tropes and genre's, writing characters so they can be played, and how to outline scripts so you can draft a screenplay in 2-3 weeks, not 3 months or 5 years. We'll also talk about working with co-writers, and what will happen to your screenplay in "development".

Right after you sign up, you'll receive a link in the receipt, and via email, to the many resources that go with this workshop.

In this in-depth workshop, you'll:

  • Talk about your project and your objectives for it.
  • Find out where to get content creation tools for free and cheap, including those that can help you create a better screenplay faster.
  • Become familiar with competing structures for screenplays including the 3-Act Structure, the 9-Act Structure, and the Hero's Journey.
  • Learn how to outline a screenplay over the course of a few days so you can get a good draft out the door in two-to-three weeks.
  • Learn where you can start pitching your screenplay(s) to producers and become familiar with how to get an agent.

This workshop comes with many recorded workshops which provide in-depth information and links to resources so you can start learning even before the event starts. See the full list of resources below.


The 3-hour face-to-face event will be held in Santa Monica. It will be organized as a business meeting / round table. Bring your computer, if desired, so you can take notes, visit websites, etc. Be prepared to talk about your work and the plans you have in mind for your screenplay. Do you intend to sell it? Produce it yourself? Is it a large budget project or an indie film?
