Could Hollywood be in your future? Aspiring writers are invited to a hands on workshop with award winning writer Stacey Rose. Participants will learn the nuances of screenplay, teleplay, & theatrical play structure and how to bring story ideas from your mind to the page. She will guide participants through an overview of life as an emerging writer in the industry based on her experiences in the worlds of stage, screen and television. The workshop will close with a question and answer session.
