SFU’s Praxis Centre for Screenwriters is a terrific resource.

They have just announced a workshop that might be of interest to some of you. Here’s the info:

West Coast Screenwriting principals, Keith Digby (Young Alexander,

Time Exposures) and Brian Paisley (Lies Like Truth, The Great Night of Shiva) are holding ‘Weekend Blitz’ personalized workshops in Victoria andVancouver for aspiring screenwriters and adaptors.


In five sessions of high-octane teaching, Brian and Keith will take participants through hands-on sessions in screenwriting structure, character development, creating visual action scenes, and building sequences that grip the audience.


For new and emerging screenwriters, bring your idea/concept, outline or unfinished screenplay. Novel and short-story writers, who might be thinking of adapting one of their works, bring a one-page outline and watch its progress toward the big screen
