In this module, we will look at how to write a web series, and what are the requirements in terms of concept, character and structure. Please note that this is not a fully fledged screenwriting course, but we will emphasise those aspects of web series writing that are unique to the format.


With every story, the most important part is the concept, because it impacts on literally *everything*. If you don’t start off in the right direction, any energy you spend on developing characters, structure and episodes will be a complete waste.


If you love writing great characters, the web series is your place to be. Most series revolve around strong recurring protagonists. But what constitutes a 'strong' character on the web? After all, this is NOT television!
