<b>Intensives</b>

alt=

How much can you learn in one day? Plenty. As you will discover in one of our One-Day Intensives in New York City.

The One-Day Intensives are seven-hour crash courses. You are immersed in a topic through a mixture of brief lectures that hit the high-points and writing exercises that let you immediately try your hand at what you’ve just learned.

The Intensives provide an excellent overview of their fields, ideal for both the beginner and someone wanting a quick refresher course. Arrive in the morning with a desire to learn. By the end of the day, you’ll be a more knowledgeable and skilled writer.

Students come from all over the world for our One-Day Intensives. You're likely to be sitting near NYC locals as well as people from such far-flung places as Texas, Egypt, and Japan. (NYC Hotel Information.)

Intensives are open for writers of any level.

We offer an online version of an Intensive, a three-week Character course.

We also offers two and four-week seminars, including: How to Get Published, Hit Send: Publishing Short Nonfiction, How to Blog, and Nonfiction Book Proposal.

Students may reschedule a One-Day Intensive one time.

Documentary Films
Documentary films are more popular and prevalent than ever, appearing in theaters, on DVD, and across the spectrum of TV channels. Any subject is fair game: political controversy (Fahrenheit 9/11), research findings (Super Size Me), personal drama (Hoop Dreams), historical narrative (The Civil War), the little niches of life (Spellbound). They can run the length of a mini-series or be as brief as a short film. Documentary films are not just the result of hauling around a camera and sound equipment; they are carefully crafted pieces of nonfiction storytelling. In this course, you will learn how to conceive ideas, structure stories, conduct research and interviews, write narration, and adapt your plans to the footage you get. You will also learn how and where to market your work.

For starting out: see the class listed below.

For in-depth consultation: a student may work one-on-one with an instructor through our Mentorship Program.
