For the last few weeks, I’ve been working on my first class for

If you’re not familiar, Skillshare is an online learning community
with thousands of classes on everything from business to graphic
design to fashion – it’s the Netflix of learning.
Where you’ll learn SCREENPLAY IDEA. I’m proud of what I’ve created,
and I’d really appreciate if you’d help me out by watching my class

Not only is this an awesome deal, but your enrollment will help my
class trend on Skillshare, which means that more students will be able
to discover it.
If you know of anyone else that’d be interested to learn SCREENPLAY
