Write Screenplays That Sell: the Ackerman Way Description

You don’t have to attend film school to take a screenwriting course with the master teacher in the field – it’s all in his book! Meet Hal Ackerman, up close and personal, just as hundreds of his students have known him through the years.

Hal Ackerman offers a treasure trove of information on the writing of quality, saleable screenplays by teaching the art of story structure, substance and style.

Over the last quarter century, dozens of screenplays written in his classes have been sold and several have become films, including ones starring Tom Hanks (directed by Steven Spielberg), Gwyneth Paltrow, Christian Bale, Hilary Swank and Diane Lane. They have won accolades in many prestigious contests and have been the gateway scripts to writing jobs in feature films and TV including HBO, Showtime, TNT, OWN, ABC, NBC, CBS, Disney, and more.

With this book every professional writer gets a lifetime collaborator and every aspiring writer has a teacher in residence on his or her shelf.

*Newly Revised and Updated edition featuring Moonlight, La La Land, Juno, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, among others.

*Top-selling screenwriting book for almost 15 years -- Fifteenth Anniversary Edition
