How to Make Your Screenplay or Novel Better ... Fast!

Screenwriter and bestselling novelist Marilyn Horowitz knows her way around writing screenplays and books, and in an intensive seminar at NYWIFT she'll give you the map to reach writing glory too! Take it from Horowitz, who, using her own trademarked writing system, has taught hundreds to write a screenplay in 10 weeks or less and coached novelists with Simon and Schuster and Doubleday.

In this intensive seminar, Horowitz will show you how to get the necessary "hook" to make your work commercially viable yet original. She knows about both personally. Her recent thriller, The Book of Zev, shot to the Amazon bestseller list in its first week of publication. Horowitz will share tips to help you shape your story, saving you many hours of needless drudgery. You will learn how to use elements from novel writing to improve a screenplay, and vice versa. She will also show you a simple trick to adapt your story from one medium to another.

Whether you are an experienced writer, a beginner, a producer, or a director, this class will provide new and useful information to help you take your writing to the next level.
