ENGL 487:
This is a screenwriting class, which means that the bulk of the responsibility for the success of this class is based on the writing students produce for the class and their critique of the writing done by your classmates.

The goal of the class is to prepare students for more independent writing and self-critique. The focus on the writing is centered on revision, editing, adaptation of an existing fictional story and understanding the craft of the screenplay.

The course is divided into four major areas: Story, Character, Dialogue and Structure.
