Chelsea will look at all aspects of your script, including Character, Dialogue, Structure, Plot, Story, and Theme. A story starts with character, and that’s where she will begin assessing your script. Well-formed characters require a satisfying arc along with their own personal transformation, and the story itself should aim to be a comment on the human condition. Chelsea can guide you towards a solid structure and a clear narrative with your script. As much as there is a “template” to screenplays, it is also important that your own brand of storytelling shines through. We come to rely on well-known script structures, but a unique voice is also key. This online course actively encourages sharing of your work with your cohort as well as with the tutor.

You will Learn:

  • How to approach each new story building from character and theme to create the basis of your story
  • How to structure your screenplay in order to build escalating obstacles, conflict, surprise, and suspense
  • How to write dialogue for the strongest emotional impact while also maintaining your unique voice 
  • How to plot quickly and to overcome writers block
  • How to create a satisfying story arc incorporating your character's personal journey


Pieces of up to up to 1500 words for an outline or treatment or 10 script pages due 11:55pm Mondays 31 January, 28 February, 28 March, 25 April, 30 May.
