Your application should include your name; year; a brief description of your screenplay, play or dramatic treatment; a brief explanation as to why you want to work with Mr. Wolk; list of relevant courses (if any); a brief description of how far along the writing is; at least part of the written work.

The three-day workshop is modeled on the Sundance Institute Labs (with which Andy Wolk has been integrally involved). Each of the four participants will spend 90 minutes with Mr. Wolk discussing his or her work (Monday, December 5 or Tuesday December 6). The four together will participate in a master class on structuring a screenplay and writing dialogue. Participants will also hear their work read aloud by Penn-affiliated actors. Lastly, a two-hour session with Mr. Wolk and the four students will conclude the program (Wednesday, December 7).
