With Fayetteville Film Festival

Screenwriting is fun and hard. No matter if you’re a beginner or an Oscar winner, the start of a screenplay can feel daunting. Let’s dive into some of the basics and consider approaches to structure to help you get started and unstuck when the inevitable block happens. There’s no perfect science, but there’s a history of storytelling to lean on.

This event is presented in partnership with the Fayetteville Film Festival, a non-profit organization dedicated to nurturing the art of filmmaking in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and its surrounding areas. Their mission is to unite a community of creators and supporters by bringing world-class independent films to our region, developing meaningful relationships with filmmakers and celebrating the transformative power of storytelling through cinema. Learn more at https://www.fayettevillefilmfest.org.

The True Lit Festival is in collaboration with the Fayetteville Public Schools, Fayetteville Public Education Foundation, Walton Arts Center, University of Arkansas Program in Creative Writing and Translation and Altrusa International of Fayetteville, Arkansas.
