Teens who have an idea to turn into a movie or who dream about writing for television can learn the basics of the craft and find out how to shape an idea from start to finish. The workshop teacher, Carla Iacovetti, is a screenwriter and screenwriting coach and holds a Master’s degree in creative writing. She teaches screenwriting at Santa Barbara City College and also offers a free ongoing screenwriting course for adults at the Library.
