STORY MASTERY INTENSIVE MASTER CLASS
This all-day, hands on workshop is open only to those who have participated in Michael’s STORY MASTERY seminar. Enrollment is strictly limited to keep the group small and give all participants the opportunity for feedback on their work in progress –screenplays, manuscripts or nonfiction. Michael will specifically focus on story concepts, character development, plot structure, love stories, and commercial potential.
Prior to the class, participants will be expected to submit their work to Michael and all other participants in the workshop, AND to read the work by the other participants (this process will be explained in detail after you enroll). It is not necessary to have a completed manuscript or screenplay; the workshop is designed for new projects, first drafts and works in progress as well.
