Workshop Course Guidelines


Thank you for registering for The Workshop (the “Course”) with Jacob Krueger Studio, LLC (the “Company”).  These guidelines, along with the Participant Agreement, apply to you, the Course, and your participation and Contributions (as defined below) during the Course. 

Please review the following guidelines and e-sign as indicated below.


  • The Workshop seeks to turn the traditional film school model upside down, by giving writers life-long support and professional mentorship at every stage of their screenwriting careers, in an intimate group of equally dedicated writers.
  • You’ll be scheduled to submit up to 10 pages every other session. You’ll cast your fellow writers, hear your work read aloud, and get professionally guided feedback from your mentor and your fellow writers.
  • You will be allotted approximately 45 minutes every other session dedicated to reading, receiving feedback and asking questions about your writing.


  • Your first session will take place {{first_session_date}}.
  • The Workshop will meet twice a month, on the same day and time, generally every other week, with occasional exceptions as required for scheduling.
  • You can find a link to a complete calendar on the class page on Schoology. You can also use this link to add the calendar to your Google calendar.
  • On rare occasions, we need to make changes in the calendar due to unavoidable circumstances or changes in your mentor’s schedule. In the unlikely event that such a change should become necessary with less than 3 months advance notice, and causes a conflict in your schedule, just let us know and we will provide a prorated refund for that session.
  • Please note that with the exception of changes to the schedule that occur with less than 3 months notice, all payments will be charged regardless of your attendance of the class.
  • If you cannot attend live, or wish to re-watch a session, we provide free replays of each session that you can watch and rewatch as long as you remain enrolled in the class.


  • As long as you’d like! The goal of The Workshop is to create a close-knit group of writers who can learn and grow together over many years and throughout their careers.
  • After your initial 12 month commitment, your membership in the class will renew automatically on a month to month basis. If you ever wish to leave the course, you can do so at any time after your initial commitment by providing a minimum of 30 days notice to


  • Your deposit of ${{sign_up_fee}} will be billed on {{order_date}}. This deposit holds your spot in the class for as long as you’d like to stay.
  • You will be billed monthly for ${{price}} starting on {{start_date}}.
  • Upon 30 days’ notice that you wish to leave the class, we will apply your deposit toward the cost of your final month in the class, giving you a month to wrap up with your mentor, and us a month to find a qualified writer to take your spot.
  • Please note that deposits can only be applied toward your final month in the class after we receive 30 days of notice. Deposits cannot be refunded.
  • In the unlikely circumstance that your mentor should become permanently unavailable to teach the course, you will have the option to switch to a Workshop taught by a different mentor, or have your deposit refunded and be released from your commitment, whichever you prefer.


  • If you attend the first session and do not feel that The Workshop is right for you, simply let us know what went wrong within 48 hours and we will be happy to switch you to a class that is a better fit, or to refund your money, whichever you prefer.  Course fees are not refundable after this initial 48 hour period.


  • Show up on time, every time: We know schedules are crazy, but if you want to be a professional writer, you’ve got to make a professional commitment, especially when your group is counting on you. Should an unavoidable conflict come up, please notify us and your fellow students as far in advance as possible. Please note that excessive absences or latenesses may lead to you being removed from the class.
  • Hit Your Deadlines: You’ll be scheduled to workshop up to 10 pages every other week. Make sure to submit those pages on time, and come prepared with a cast list so you get the most value from the time devoted to your writing. If you and another student both wish to swap workshop dates, you are welcome to do so provided you notify us and your fellow students of the change. However to be fair to everyone we do not assist in facilitating such changes in schedule. And generally we recommend you keep to your deadlines whenever possible, because learning to deliver pages even during the hardest weeks is vital to your success as a writer.
  • Be Respectful: Treat your mentor and your fellow writers with the focus, respect, and professionalism you would want for yourself. Be open. Work your tail off. And you’re going to be amazed at how much you grow and learn.
