Writing Classes

One-to-One Screenwriting Tutoring (Skype available international writers only) 

The relationship between the story on the screen in the theater and the people sitting in the seats makes or breaks the artistic and commercial success of the movie. What does a screenplay do to genuinely occupy an audience? What coerce a reader to keep turning the pages? Why do some certain elements provoke stronger emotional reactions to our stories? How does a writer write this into their screenplay? Where does this come from within the writer? Why are there great and less great scripts in Nollywood?


This is a question I often ask myself, and the primary reason is, I believe, some writers don't have solid foundation in screenwriting. To help screenwriters develop their technical, creative and crucial abilities with screen storytelling to become a more better, productive writers and perceptive thinkers and avoid errors of newbies, I now offer a personal coaching service that focuses on your writing, to produce a compelling screenplay.

One week of five working days tutoring at ₦25 000 - $150

ACB Full Script Discussion Monthly Workshop (Limit 10 Writers)

Participants read ten screenplays in advance of the workshop. During the workshop, I provide direct and in-depth feedback on each screenplay, with everyone encouraged to contribute his or her own thoughts and concerns. 

Screenplays can be first drafts or rewrites, incomplete or partial, with first time writers all welcome. Scripts are due for submission 1 month prior to the date of the workshop. Scripts may not exceed 120 pages in length.

First Fifteen Pages ACB Script Discussion Monthly Workshop (Limit 15 writers)

Each writer submits the first fifteen pages of their screenplay to the participating group before the workshop day. On the workshop day, we read the fifteen pages out loud, providing each writer the valuable experience of hearing their script, followed by a discussion of the pages by the workshop. 

What if I don’t have a script ready, but I’d like to attend?

Do you want to participate, but do not have a script to submit? You can register for the acb script discussion workshop through email, which allows you to attend without submitting written material or paying, read the scripts in advance and still participate in the discussion.
