Fortunately, there are many options that you can choose from in trying to get the necessary training for screenwriting. You can join workshops and seminars on the matter or you can take formal courses from a university that offers this. If you want, you may even content yourself with the articles posted on the internet or with printed books and magazines about this writing work.

With skills honed, you can certainly produce a great screenplay that may be accepted by a film outfit. Of course, that could be translated in a very good compensation.
