Workshops specific to your writing needs.

TV Writers' Retreat

They say to write what you know. But what does it mean to tell your story? And how can you tell that story and get it made?


In this intense and intentional weekend-long retreat, writer, producer, and professor Paul Kolsby (Ozark) will answer those questions while also pushing you to put aside your own ego so you can write the personal story that will actually sell, get made, and get on TV.


With special guest Q&As with Liz Benjamin (13 Reasons Why), Sheila Lawrence (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), and Jessica Mecklenburg (Stranger Things).
