Writing LGBTQ Characters for Screen Weekend
It is now all about writing inclusive series and films. This course is both theoretical and practical, with a short history of LGBTQIA+ characters on screen and an introduction into writing characters in this area.
The idea is to get a comprehensive vision of LGBTQIA+ on screen, how to improve their visibility, how to make them relatable and powerful. The theoretical aspect will be linked to writing exercises, developing LGBTQIA+ characters and creating interesting dynamics and storylines.
