MENTOR CLASS - Killin' It: Writing for Tweens and Teens

Sunday, February 22, 2015
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Arguably the most discerning audience to write for, it’s not impossible to win tweens and teens over. Shows like Bob’s Burgers and Pretty Little Liars have recently done a great job hitting each demo’s sweet spot. So how do you balance unique characters with intriguing narrative threads and story arcs that will keep them entertained? Join a master of the tween/teen writing craft to talk process and genres, and you’ll come away with the tools you need to polish your script ideas.

PLEASE NOTE: Attendees who are keen to pack more professional learning into their Summit week can take part in this session for an additional $250. If you're interested in signing up, contact Maggie Wilkins ( or 416-408-2300 x539).
