 WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO

In this 5 minute video our alumni explain what Script Anatomy is all about, and how it can change your career, change your life. For more from our alumni, check out our Testimonials page.

 WHAT’S UNIQUE ABOUT SCRIPT ANATOMY?

One: Our instructors are all actively working television writers. If you want to learn how to write a script, how to pitch a TV show, and ultimately, how to get a job writing for TV, there’s no better teacher than a working writer who is up-to-date on this fast-moving industry.

Two: We treat our writers as emerging professionals. While our focus is on developing your craft, we also try to prepare you for life in the professional world. So we run several classes like real TV writers rooms. Our instructors will always give an honest evaluation of your project. And we cover staffing, development, acquiring representation, and the application process for the all-important studio writing programs that have launched so many alumni careers. 

Three: Our curriculum. We teach a unique system based on our trademarked Script Anatomy tools (see below). Our instructors don’t teach whatever they want—while they each bring their individual experience and personality to the table, they all teach the proven Script Anatomy method. So if you take a specific class with us, that class will have the same structure, curriculum, lectures, and tools, regardless of instructor.

IS SCRIPT ANATOMY RIGHT FOR ME?

If you’re serious about your writing goals, then yes. We aim to turn aspiring writers into professional writers who are ready to enter the industry. However, if you’re interested in a more casual experience with tea and biscuits and a certificate at the end, then honestly, there are other schools. Our focus is on breaking you into a TV writing career.

Our students range from those who’ve literally never written before, to working writers who have been in the business for years. We also see network execs, directors and actors, as well as journalists, cops, lawyers, nurses and on and on. What they share is an urge to tell stories and a willingness to put in the work and go for it!

 

THE COMMUNITY

Script Anatomy hosts regular networking mixers and industry panels with agents, producers and managers. And we encourage our writers to form independent writers groups. We’re a dynamic and supportive community because it can be tough out there, and sometimes, it can take a village. Join us and start building your network.
