Gordy Hoffman, the Sundance award-winning writer/director (LOVE LIZA, A COAT OF SNOW) and founder of the BlueCat Screenplay Competition, comes to Tampa to lead a screenwriting workshop on Saturday, November 7th from 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.

Winner of the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival for LOVE LIZA, Gordy is a former Adjunct Professor of screenwriting at the USC School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles, as well as having led workshops across the US and Canada, London and Poland.

Gordy Hoffman is now attached to direct a movie in 2010 in UK and France, written by Melissa Brandt.

This workshop will consist of 12 writers each submitting ten pages of a work in progress in advance. We will go over each work individually, reading the pages aloud, while discussing the specific, unique challenges each writer is facing on the page.

This discussion will include the technical aspects of description and dialogue, the depth and reality of the characters, and how the ten pages reflect where the entire story goes.

The intimate, focused interaction with fellow writers in the workshop will provide all with a greater understanding of the work that lies ahead on their screenplay, and more importantly, a detailed sense of how they might develop as writers themselves.
