<b>Intensives</b>

The Intensives are fun, fast-paced immersions in a type of writing. You’ll get 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. Come in to class with a notepad, pen, and desire to learn. By the end of the day, you’ll be a more knowledgeable and skilled writer.

Intensives are for beginners or anyone who wants to brush up on the fundamentals.

Intensives are offered in NYC on Fridays and weekends throughout the year.

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

Students may reschedule a One-Day Intensive one time.

TV Writing
To break into writing for scripted TV shows, you need two or three great "spec" scripts—perfectly executed episodes of still-current shows. TV Writing covers primetime comedies (i.e. Everybody Loves Raymond, Will and Grace), and dramas (i.e. Law and Order, Six Feet Under), and those shows that draw elements from both (i.e. Monk, Desperate Housewives).

In this One-Day, you will learn how to structure and format to industry standards, stay true to a show’s characters and spirit, and develop a dramatist’s sense of dialogue and scene. You will also learn how and where to market your work.
