Let’s Make a Scene
October 14, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Scenes are the building blocks of screenplays. Like Legos, each one is strong and intact on its own — but its purpose is to be part of a larger structure. This is a seminar for anyone interested in the many ways screenwriting differs from prose. To get the most from our time together, read a few scripts online, jot some notes, and be ready to write a scene of your own. Please bring pen and paper: We’re going old school for a couple hours.
Join Straw Dog Writers Guild for Let’s Make a Scene craft workshop with Pamela Marin on Saturday, October 14, 10:30am – 12:30pm at Lilly Library. Free. No registration necessary.

One essay caught the eye of a producer for The Oprah Winfrey Show; Pamela wrote and recorded a piece that was featured on the show in 2001. Her memoir, Motherland, was named one of the Chicago Tribune’s best books of 2005.
