Aaron Sorkin

Teaches Screenwriting

Your script starts here.

Aaron Sorkin wrote his first movie on cocktail napkins. Those napkins turned into A Few Good Men, starring Jack Nicholson. Now, the Academy Award winning writer of The West Wing and The Social Network is teaching screenwriting. You’ll learn his rules of storytelling, dialogue, character development, and what makes a script actually sell. By the end, you'll write unforgettable screenplays.


Watch, listen, and learn as Aaron teaches the essentials of writing for television and film.


A downloadable workbook accompanies the class with lesson recaps and supplemental materials.


Upload videos to get feedback from the class. Aaron will also critique select student work.

Lesson Plan

Aaron is incredibly bright and speaks in real terms/actionable steps for me as a screenwriter...not in the abstract. I enjoyed the real and actionable instruction.

Mamta ValderramaAuthor & entrepreneur

I enjoyed the major themes: intention & obstacle, developing good habits, and the challenges of being a writer. I look forward to applying Aaron's ideas to my work

Marc ChungSoftware engineer & writer

All the struggles I face as a writer, he faces them too. It's refreshing to see Aaron speaking to the camera finding clever ways to paint a picture with words.

Sim GrewallWriter, musician & filmmaker

I loved Sorkin's unique insights and his compassionate, encouraging nature when talking with his students. I had no idea how much heart the guy had.

Eric GloverScreenwriter

Loved listening to Aaron lecture, share his experiences, and engage with his students around the table.
