Our Creative Writing – Comic Scriptwriting program prepares writers to enter the entertainment field with confidence. You will learn the essentials (story, structure, conflict, and, most important, comic voice) and the business side of getting in the door (pitching, do's and don'ts, how to handle rewrites, and writing for producers). You will graduate with the satisfaction of knowing that your experience is truly a one-of-a-kind accomplishment.
Students work on a one-to-one basis with an award-winning, internationally acclaimed writer who critiques, supports and improves their writing. Program faculty have made millions laugh, including Joe Flaherty (Second City Television (SCTV), Happy Gilmore, Freaks and Geeks) and David Flaherty (SCTV, Maniac Mansion, writer, producer).
Your experience will span 30 weeks. Correspondence is as close as your fingers are to your laptop. No classroom here. Just you and your ideas. Our Advisory Committee provides regular review and input of our curriculum ensuring our program is always on the cutting edge of industry developments.
