Save the Cat!® Weekend Intensive Writers Workshop – Minneapolis
March 7 - March 8$395
Our Writers Workshop is like no other writing intensive. You’ll walk in on Saturday morning with your own idea for a film or novel, and leave on Sunday evening with the 15 key beats that will serve as the foundation of your screenplay or novel.
Your instructor is J.J. Austrian. J.J. grew up in New England, was named a Connecticut Young Playwright in high school, and graduated with a B.A. in Theater from Bard College. He worked in Los Angeles as a coordinator of current programming at Fox Television before returning to the East Coast, where he met his wife at a Halloween party. She married him a few years later, in spite of his costume choice. J.J. took Beat Sheet Workshops taught by Blake Snyder and frequently conferred with Blake. After moving to Minnesota, J.J. earned his MFA in Creative Writing for Children and Young Adults at Hamline University. His acclaimed picture book, Worm Loves Worm, received a 2017 Minnesota Book Award and was a Charlotte Huck Award Honoree for Outstanding Fiction for Children.
