Project Pitching & Story Structure with Catherine Ann Jones

Catherine Ann Jones, is an award-winning author and playwright as well as a sought-after screenwriter with these outstanding shows among her credits: The Christmas Wife, starring Jason Robards and Julie Harris (four Emmy nominations), the charming Christmas movie, Unlikely Angel, starring Dolly Parton, and the multi-Emmy nominated Touched by an Angel series, which ran for nine seasons on CBS. Her numerous books include Heal Your Self with Writing, The Way of Story, What Story Are You Living, Freud’s Oracle, and Buddha and the Dancing Girl. 

Description of talk:

Screenwriters and prose writers will love this interactive and fun way to learn the tricks of the successful pitch from an experienced and respected Hollywood insider. Gain invaluable feedback on pitches, useful for selling your book or screenplay, from award-winning author, screenwriter/producer Catherine Ann Jones.

Focus will be on story structure, rewriting your proposal and story, character development, point of view, & how to focus your pitch.

It’s all in the story, and how to focus the story. Film or book, fiction or non-fiction, requires an emotional response from reader and audience. Learn how to structure your story or proposal in order to successfully realize your project.
