I recently took Jaclyn’s screenwriting course, and I am so happy with everything I learned. Jaclyn is professional, organized and easy to understand; helping students and giving valuable feedback along the way. She helped me bring the story and characters in my mind to life, and gave me a foundation to get my first screenplay off the ground and running. One of my favorite parts was how she explained ways to organize our outline and writing process for different learning styles. Finally it helped everything "click" and make sense for me and my "ADD" brain.
