SCRIPT WRITING SEMINAR -  Saturday June 16th 2018

A one day intensive Script Writing Seminar conducted by novelist, playwright, and screenwriter Gary Blackwood. Thank you to the North Shore Players for hosting and sponsoring this event.

This event was a sold-out success! "It was exactly what I think this small little burg needed. I went home and started from scratch with the lessons learned from Gary. I think that Tatamagouche as well as The North Shore would certainly benefit from similar events." - Mike Purdy
