As a technical writer, I rarely find creative time at the keyboard. This screenwriting class gave me the push that I needed – Michael Lucker provided the structure, creative encouragement, and community necessary for me to quickly create my first script, and I emerged with a whole new appreciation for story. I wouldn’t hesitate to make the investment again.

Michael's feedback on my screenplays has been consistently outstanding for the 20 years I've been a working screenwriter in Hollywood. I would strongly urge any writer to take his workshop, whether they're a professional veteran of the craft or just starting out.

I took the screenwriting course from Michael and learned a lot about the basic craft. He used great examples and explained things in a manner that made them easy to comprehend. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to explore this area of movie making as well as having an expert critique your work.
