Teaching at National University

Since 2011, I’ve begun teaching as an Adjunct Faculty and creating classes for National University’s online Master of Fine Arts in Professional Screenwriting Program.  I’ve been focused on the “TV Writing Track,” where I present an introductory course followed by a 12-week workshop where students  learn about the different series genres, pitch multiple concepts for original shows, and ultimately outline a pilot episode for one of their ideas.  Check out the program’s Facebook page… and read about some of the other great faculty on its Tumblr page

There’s also a great Script Magazine article about the program online.

More info on courses and degree requirements is below…

    Hello Erik:

    Thanks for the updates. Happy to learn of your appreciation of Blake Snyder’s “Save The Cat”. It has been a large influence on my writing. Blake’s “Save The Cat Goes To The Movies.” is excellent in analyzing many prominent films, in his inimitable personal, one-on-on style.

    Best wishes for your continuing successful run…

    Stay well… Warren.
