The classes are held twice a year and meet on Saturdays from 9 am to 3 pm at my home in North Wilsonville, Oregon. Cost of the class is $495.

This class meets on 6  Saturdays. Students start with an idea or a script in progress. At the end of the class students submit a draft of a screenplay. Cynthia then reads the completed script and gives the student: written, professional “Script Doctor” feedback.

In past classes, students have ranged from first time screenwriters to writers working on a second or third script.  Many have gone on to successful careers in screenwriting and writing for television.
