Chicago Screenwriters Network (CSN) is a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization
On Sunday, April 12th, our guest speaker will be Grant Robbin, a screenwriting coach and an adjunct faculty member at Columbia College Chicago, whose presentation is entitled How To Write A Great Ending.
If you don't have a strong, compelling ending, you don't have a story! In this unique, enlightening presentation, utilizing various movie clips, Grant will show you how to create great endings. He will discuss different kinds of endings: the lesser of two evils, two irreconcilable goods, up, down, ironic, open, closed, false and contrived (a.k.a., the "deus ex machina"). Grant will further explore how a solid ending is the key to unlocking the character arc and theme of your story.
Chicago Screenwriters Network is proud to have been selected as an exhibitor at the inaugural Lake FX Summit + Expo taking place in mid-April at the Chicago Cultural Center (with additional programming being staged at other venues).
