A Master Class with Alexandra Sokoloff
Saturday and Sunday, June 3 & 4, 2017

Award-winning author/screenwriter Alexandra Sokoloff’s internationally acclaimed Screenwriting Tricks for Authors story structure workshops and workbooks use movies to teach authors and screenwriters essential film structure and visual storytelling techniques, and have helped hundreds of aspiring authors to publishing deals and professional authors to write better books.
This two-day master class will illuminate the Three-Act, Eight-Sequence structure of film writing and how to use it to plot your book idea and/or rewrite your novel to make it the best book it can be.
