This two day workshop will help you turn your idea for a show into a pilot script. A pilot is more than jokes and action, it is about building a world that the viewer wants to keep watching. By working on a logline for your project and giving you tips for how to turn that logline into a script, this class will cover basic techniques for outlining, writing, revising and selling your show. We will also discuss tone, characters and how to edit your idea to get the most out of your script. Participants should come with an idea for a show that they want to develop. You can catch her live at the  Back Fence PDX: Mainstage show on November 20. The theme that night is  Underdogs: They Came from Behind. Tickets are available at Back Fence PDX.
