Two-Day Nutshell Technique Workshop - Sept 14-15, 2019


Learn what great movies are made of, and how to make your own scripts just as strong. In this two day, 12 hour course, author and consultant Jill Chamberlain will teach participants how to identify the Nutshell Technique in films and in episodic television and then use the method in their own work.

The Schedule


  • 10am-12pm — Jill walks through the Nutshell Technique and three-act story structure

  • 1pm-3pm — Volunteers will be called on to present their own nutshells to see if their scripts follow the technique properly

  • 3:30pm-5pm — Advanced application of the Nutshell Technique®

  • 5:15pm – Network with Jill Chamberlain and fellow writers at a nearby bar/restaurant.


  • Once everyone has a firm grasp of the technique, we delve deeper into how it applies to TV episodes
