We believe screenwriting should be accessible to all students, regardless of income or location.

For too long, quality screenwriting courses were only available to aspiring writers who lived in big cities and could afford to pay a premium.

That's why Professor John Warren, an award-winning NYU Tisch professor and professional screenwriter/producer, launched Young Screenwriters—an online writing program designed to empower more people to tell their stories, no matter where they are—free or at a price that's actually affordable. It's rigorous, but fun, too. We promise!
