RTVF 184A: The Writer’s Room

This course focuses on the skills needed to work effectively in a Television writers’ room. The class itself will act as a writers’ room, allowing students to experience the process of pitching ideas, writing scripts, revising material, and collaborating with a team of writers in an authentic setting. Areas of study include writing, pitching, revising work based on notes, efficiently and productively pitching to improve the script, collaborating with other writers, and finding one’s voice/persona in a group. The course will also give each student a chance to learn leadership skills by guiding the group creatively as they “run the room.” Prerequisite: RTVF34 or permission of department. No liberal arts credit. May not be taken on a Pass/D+/D/Fail basis.
