Writing Advanced Project Option (CTWR 533A and CTWR 533B)

DEADLINE: 533A APPLICATIONS DUE THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 2017 at 12 NOON.

Attention all MFA Production students interested in the "Production Writing Track" (a degree emphasis on screenwriting where Grad Production Students take CTWR 533A and 533B to fulfill their Advanced Project Requirement):

An application is required for admittance to the Writing Advanced Project Option (CTWR 533A and CTWR 533B)

CTWR 533A and 533B are designed for production students seeking to write a feature length screenplay for their Advanced Project. Both courses must be passed and completed to fulfill the Advanced Project requirement. 

Selected students will be given D-clearance to register for CTWR 533A and must take CTWR 533B the following semester. Students who are already in 533A this semester, will automatically be given D-Clearance for 533B and they will need to register on their assigned registration date (in April).

All students who have completed CTWR 529 are eligible to apply for 533A, but only 16 students are selected. If you are not selected the first time you can apply in subsequent semesters.  Selections will be based on the application, not seniority.

Application:

Students must submit 1) a summary description of the screenplay they wish to write, the reason they want to explore this particular story, and their personal connection to it (2-3 pages maximum);  2) 10 pages from a short film script the applicant has written; and 3) the names of their CTWR 505 and 529 instructors.

Please deliver 1 copy of the application (in a manila envelope with your name, email address and SCA I.D. #) to Writing Division SCA 335 (on 3rd floor of Lucas Building) by Thursday, March 30th, 2017 at 12 Noon.

Selected students will be announced on APRIL 7, 2017.
