  • Practical, hands-on approach to teaching and learning the craft of writing.
  • Exercise-based text puts the students' work at the center of the screenwriting course.
  • Breaks the complex craft of screenwriting into teachable/learnable phrases and pieces.
  • The beauty and power of any story lies in its ability to connect to the reader, listener, or observer. Crafting Short Screenplays That Connect is the first screenwriting guide to introduce connection as an essential, although essentially overlooked, aspect of creating stories for the screen and of the screenwriting process itself. Written with clarity and humor, this book teaches the craft of writing short screenplays by guiding the student through carefully focused writing exercises. The worktext format allows the student to write preparatory exercises directly in the book. Five award-winning student screenplays are included for illustration and inspiration.
