Tim Albaugh Film and TV Writing Workshop Guide


In Tim’s 10 week workshop you can write a new script or rewrite an existing draft. Features and pilots are welcome. All work takes place in a supportive and inclusive environment. Each week writers will post their work in a dedicated Dropbox for their classmates, read each other’s work, then participate in a weekly group Zoom call to critique, discuss and brainstorm. By the end of the ten sessions writers will have a completed draft of their feature or pilot and will find themselves one step closer to their creative and professional goals. In addition to weekly notes, Tim will do a final read of your full draft with written page notes and a private one hour Zoom call to discuss the notes and next steps.

Tim’s next round of 10 week online classes start Tuesday, May 7th at 11am PST or Wednesday, May 8th at 6pm PST.

The cost of the workshop is $1750. We offer payment plans for all our workshops for those who are interested. We also offer referral bonuses.

Don’t miss this opportunity to work in a vibrant, supportive setting with an active writer/producer/consultant. Each class is capped at 8 participants to ensure the maximum amount of support and guidance.

What Our Writers Are Saying

Tim’s workshop energizes you. You come away knowing all he wants is to help you make the story in your head better than you first imagined. He genuinely cares, which makes him one of the best mentors out there.

Godwin Jabangwe, Imagine Impact Creator (Tunga at Netflix)

Tim helps you build your story from the ground up – character work, outlines – so you can solve your story problems early on. Once my script was ready, Tim helped me attach a producer and get it set up at a studio.

Noushin Jahanian, Screenwriter, The Start Up (eOne)

Tim is a legend in the screenwriting space because of his amazing work with students. Any student would be lucky to be under his tutelage, and would become a much better writer because of it.
