SCREENWRITING 101

with Dr. Lawrence Wood and Brae Wyckoff

Have you envisioned your work on the Big Screen? Has your heart been set on writing for Directors in Hollywood? That's true for many of us. But in order to do that, we need to know how to transform our novel into a screenplay. As you can imagine, writing a novel is very different than writing a movie or TV series.

KWA Vision Lead, Dr. Lawrence Wood, is a novelist and screenplay writer who is currently under contract in Holywood. He will be taking us through the how to’s of screenplay writing in this valuable 2-hour workshop. 

Brae Wyckoff, Director of Kingdom Writers Association, an Amazon bestseller, and award-winning author will be joining forces with Mr. Wood.

It’s time to make you armed and dangerous as a screenplay writer.
