Instructor: Mónica Ramón Ríos
This two-part workshop, given in Spanish, introduces writers to some of the particularities and techniques to write a narrative fiction for the screen. In the first part, we will review the technicalities to write for the screen, while reading examples by well-known Latin American writers and filmmakers. We will take into account the unstable character of this kind of text, and review methodologies to, as writers, work with the potentialities of the aural and the visual in our written texts. In the second part, we will practice two elements of screenwriting: we will create a well-constructed scene and a strong, action-driven, character-revealing dialogue to set the ground for an investigation into the script as a specific literary genre.
