Reel To Real: Writing A Story That Jumps Off The Page

Angels Camp, CA...Sally Kaplan, award-winning screenwriter and director based in Murphys, presents a uniquely creative approach for writers to develop characters, build suspense, and produce visually rich storylines. Her four-session course, Film Techniques for Writers, will take place at Manzanita Arts Emporium in Downtown Angels Camp, 1211 South Main Street (kitty-corner from the Visitors Center), on Thursdays, February 16, 23 and March 2, 9 from 6 to 8 pm.

Kaplan brings an extensive knowledge of writing for the screen from her work in Backcountry Pictures, the film production company she owns with her husband, David Vassar. The course’s instruction, discussion, and assignments, presented in workshops, will borrow from screenwriting to inspire and improve the writers’ craft. She will use film and book examples to demonstrate how the art of writing a compelling story has much in common with powerful screenwriting.

Writers at all levels can reserve a spot by February 10th with a $50 deposit toward the $200 total cost for the entire course. Registration is through or 209-728-6171.

To learn more about Sally Kaplan and her work in writing original screenplays for both films and television, and about Backcountry Pictures, go to

Manzanita Writers Press is a non-profit creative arts organization devoted to the development and support of the literary and visual arts community in Calaveras County and the wider Sierra Foothill region.
