Mt. Diablo (In-Person): The Magic of Storytelling through the Art of the Screenplay

January 14 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

CWC Mt. Diablo Presents: Paul Zeidman “The Magic of Storytelling through the Art of the Screenplay”

January 14, 2023 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

Our Feature Presentation

Paul Zeidman was born and raised in the suburban wilds of southern New Jersey. He began writing at a very early age. Little did he realize that his desire to put words to paper and a subsequent love of all things cinematic would someday combine to launch his screenwriting career.

When not writing, rewriting, or reading scripts, he enjoys watching movies, reading books of all sorts, running somewhat long distances, and making what could possibly be the best pecan pie west of the Mississippi.

The Magic of Storytelling through the Art of the Screenplay

Paul loves to create a ripping yarn that grabs the viewer and takes them on a rollercoaster ride of thrills and excitement that they can’t wait to experience again.

Paul is an award-winning screenwriter and the author of the three GO AHEAD AND ASK screenwriting books. Paul has also been running his screenwriting blog Maximum Z since 2009, co-hosts the Creative Writing Life podcast, and has been the featured guest on several screenwriting podcasts.

Writers will learn craft skills:

  • Developing structure and conflict within your story
  • Creating three-dimensional characters
  • Taking the familiar and putting your own personal spin on it
