Austin Workshops

The Screenplay Workshop with Jill Chamberlain got its start as a screenwriting school in Austin, Texas. Eventually, it made its way online as well. For now, for the safety of our students, we’ve moved ALL classes to online Zoom courses. Get your screenplays to a pro level from anywhere by tuning into our online courses.

Austin screenwriting workshops with Jill Chamberlain and other local writers are an intensive yet supportive launchpad for your next screenplay project.

Screenwriting courses meet weekly in our central Austin classrooms or online. You’ll learn both essential and advanced screenwriting techniques, while advancing your own work by exchanging feedback and ideas with fellow workshop participants.


The Screenplay Workshop with Jill Chamberlain has four sessions every year:

  • Autumn (October-December)
  • Winter (January-March)
  • Spring (March-May)
  • Summer (June-August)
