Plot, Character, & Concept from 10 a.m. to noon, Feb. 7, at the Kirkwood Community Center, 111 S. Geyer Rd, Kirkwood, Mo. Free to St. Louis Writers Guild members; $5 for nonmembers.

“In the complex and challenging pursuit of screenwriting, numerous craft elements work together to create a successful script,” Mike said. He teaches courses at Washington University in St. Louis, which include Writing Short Films, Intro & Advanced Screenwriting, Multimedia Storytelling, Travel & Outdoor Writing, Writing Adventure & Creating Action, and Writing Creatively for Online Publication.
