Writing the Romantic Comedy

With the Hallmark Channel producing over 100 romance movies a year and Lifetime airing 30 holiday movies in 2020, many other distributors — such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon — have also become enamored with this genre, creating numerous opportunities for romance writers to find a match-made-in-heaven for their scripts. 

In our 10-week online workshop, Erin Rodman, writer of the Hallmark Channel’s Nantucket Noel, will guide you from concept to first draft of your romance idea to help make it the most attractive script amongst the hundreds of enchanting submissions all vying for a “meet-cute” with its soulmate–the producer.

Over the course of ten classes, students will learn about the structure of 9-acts, while generating the pitch, an outline, and a complete first draft. The class will run for 8 weeks, then take 3 weeks off as Erin will be on set for her limited Christmas series. It will resume after that break for 2 more weeks for a deep dive into finishing your script.

Erin’s next class begins on Thursday, April 21st from 6-9 pm PST. Cost: $1500. Classes are capped at 8 students so that all participants can receive ample feedback. Please inquire for payment plan options.
