SCREENWRITING WORKSHOP TESTIMONIALS
"Dear Adam & Barbara,
Your workshop today was fabulous, so much so that I have made it my priority to ensure I sign your guestbook to detail just how brilliant it was.
I am a young writer, who found the workshop incredibly inspiring and interesting. I lack some confidence in my own work and your confident and relaxed teachings made me realise that I should be more proud of what I create, and that I simply need to learn to hone my skills a little more and thankfully I found your workshop to help me do just that!
I do indeed plan on coming to your next one and do hope that the RSC ensure you are able to continue your brilliant work of inspiring those who have creativity in their hearts."
"Hi Adam and Barbara!
Just wanted to leave a message about the screenwriting workshop today at the RSC! It was amazing! I always wanted to know more about the world of screenplay, as I would love to write for cinema, and I never had the opportunity to learn some tricks and skills as I did today! Very interesting and very inspiring! Workshops like this one are more interesting than reading books about it! It would be great to have the chance to have another workshop at the RSC! Thank you so much!"

"Adam and Barbara Fox's screenwriting workshops at The Other Place are great. I attended another one on Saturday and was once again enthralled with the way they showed how screenwriting works in a practical application, this time in Raiders of the Lost Ark. For budding writers like myself the workshops are invaluable in helping me develop my skills in this craft."
Mark Lepkowski, Northampton
"Dear Adam and Barbara,
Thank you so much for the fantastic workshop you held at the RSC yesterday. I had the beginnings of an idea for a script but absolutely no clue on how to get started or how to construct the story. Now I have much more confidence, am brimming with ideas and can't wait to get started! Thank you so much for all your fantastic advice and encouragement. Hopefully I will see you next year at one of your scriptwriters meet-ups!"
"Hello, Adam and Barbara,
It was a pleasure to meet you both on 5th November, 2016 at the RSC in Stratford-upon-Avon. Thank you for an interesting, and enjoyable workshop, in which you explained in detail the screenwriting process and gave many great examples. I left the venue with the knowledge, and motivation, to attempt writing my 1st script. I would highly recommend your workshop to anyone else who is considering this.
Thank you again, with very best wishes,
"Hello Adam and Barbara,
Just a quick note to say I thoroughly enjoyed your workshop at Stratford. I've started working with some of the points and concepts and it has inspired me to write more, and improved it at the same time."
All the very best,
"Dear Barbara and Adam,
It was a pleasure to meet you at the RSC a few weeks ago. I absolutely loved the Back To The Future workshop. Thank you so much for an inspiring, educational and entertaining afternoon! Can't wait for the Raiders one!

"Dear Adam and Barbara,
Thank you again for the wonderful screenwriting workshop you held in our Digital Arts Studio on the 9th. It was a great encouragement to see the studio full of people deeply engaged in the practice, theory and structure of the screenplay. What wonderful examples and analogies you gave!
It was very valuable for our studio to have had you share your experience, kindness, wisdom and candor to bring fresh insight into the screenwriting process. I would love to have you both back to hold a workshop again in the future, know that you are always welcome.”

"The Fox's class was simply amazing. I had a long lost dream of making movies and they inspired me to resurrect it. Relaying critical information of the screen writing process to the student with classic movies on hand for examples. But it doesn't stop there Adam and Barbara's experience in the industry lets you freely bounce any question off of them with thoughtful answers in reply. If you’re looking for help in the idea, writing or even post creative endeavor process they are prepared with assistance. I can't stress enough how thankful I am for their class and help."

"On behalf of CityArts, I want to thank you for enriching our facility with your lectures and workshops. As CityArts aims to be the center for artistic creation and appreciation – events like yours add immeasurable value to our facility. I have heard wonderful feedback from instructors and students alike abut the quality and depth of your presentations. I wanted to share with you some feedback that we got from a student recently:
Where did you find two experienced screenwriters like Adam and Barbara Fox and how did you get them to come to Wichita? I have taken two classes from them now and have loved both of them. I have come away with a deeper understanding of the three-act structure of storytelling and what makes a movie not just good, but great. Their teaching style is really effective in that we are shown examples by following crucial moments from a single, classic movie from start to finish. I was inspired both times and cam away armed and ready to turn my stories into something a producer/director would want to make!
Thank you for your contributions to CityArts and the community of Wichita. You are welcome back anytime."

“The Screenwriter's Workshop by Adam and Barbara Fox was a delight to attend, I would recommend it to any novice writer, aspiring screenwriter or novelist. I walked away surprised that I had several new tools to put into my screenwriter's toolbox. Plus, the class did not break my budget!
These two Hollywood professionals have a gift for teaching and their instruction is succinct, never did they waste our time on frivolous information or random conversations, instead I was given well defined plot structure coupled with clear examples from an Oscar winning film. This kind of clarity is much appreciated, beneficial and easy to comprehend.
Is it due to being from England? I don't know, but Adam and Barbara carried with them a refined, quiet graciousness and professional demeanor that instantly filled the room with warmth. The workshop was fun and we laughed while we learned together. I believe it is a credit to their humbleness and kindness, and their love for the art of screenwriting and for teaching.
I would have paid $55 to have coffee with you two. Thank you for coming to the USA!”

“My name is Herb Jeffries and I have been in the movie and television business for nearly eighty years entertaining audiences all over the world as a jazz singer, movie star and television actor.
I want to give my enthusiastic and wholehearted support to Adam and Barbara’s Screenwriter Workshop. Not only are they great writers but also great educators with a real gift for making learning an enjoyable and rewarding experience. My wife Savannah and I cannot recommend them highly enough, both as gifted professionals and as wonderful people. If you have the opportunity to listen to what they have to say– take it!”
Herb & Savannah Jeffries, California
“Thank you for an informative and inspirational afternoon! I will never look at a film in the same way again. I feel so smart! I especially enjoyed the technique of explaining what a writer should strive for and then seeing the perfect example in action. You did a splendid job of defining the points and then letting the students discover those points for themselves.
Once again, thank you very much for sharing your experience. It was my pleasure to meet and learn from you both. I hope I will have the opportunity again.”
Sincerely, Dona Lancaster
“A beautiful and talented presentation of the structure and process of screenwriting. I gained a whole new perspective on movie watching for the purpose of producing a script. It was extremely interesting, insightful, and very useful. I am sure Adam and Barbara enhance the landscape of life wherever they go.”
Mary Lou Vaughn, Oklahoma
"I'm looking forward to the next screenwriter workshop. I enjoyed the last one immensely. You and Barbara are wonderful teachers. I learned a lot and want to learn a lot more. Thank you."
“Thank you for stopping in Wichita for whatever reason. The fact that you chose to teach a screenwriter’s class here amazes me. I’ve always looked at the ads in Script Magazine or in the newsletter for The Writer’s Store and only dreamed that someday I’d be able to get away and really learn how to turn my screenplay into something special. I have a few books, sure, but there’s something about hearing it from somebody who’s done it and willing to answer your questions in the flesh that makes all the difference in the world.
Thank you for helping me really understand the three-act structure and the importance of moving the story forward through action vs. dialogue. That will apply to my stories nicely and I can’t wait to really apply what I’ve learned. I hope you’ll consider staying a while longer and teaching more classes!”
Scriptly yours, Heidi Howard, Deaf Kids’ Art Network
