Screenwriter's Workshop

This award winning, one-of-a-kind program fosters early vocational writing endeavors of fourth and fifth grade students. The Screenwriter’s Workshop provides an environment for dozens of writers to complete their first screenplay (and often their second, third and fourth too).Students learn the conventions of film industry-standard screenwriting by critically viewing select movies and reading produced scripts. With the engine of their rich imaginations, writers are able to produce an original five-minute narrative screenplay. Because screenwriting is a medium intended for performance, the writers will experience the thrill of seeing their work presented in a series of staged readings. The finished screenplays will be cast using the Meriden Youth Theatre at the YMCA, and performed at the Augusta Curtis Cultural Center.
