Kathie Fong Yoneda



From Hawaii to NYC, from Seattle to Moscow, from Los Angeles to Berlin, from Canada to France, from Orlando to Ireland - and dozens of places in-between - I've had the opportunity to lead seminars and give workshops.

Some of the wonderful workshop/seminar organizations that have sponsored me include: California State University, Smithsonian Institute, Master School Drehbuch, ScreenTraining Ireland, University of Hawaii, LAWEBFEST, Selling to Hollywood, Austin Writers League, Novelists Inc., Romance Writers of America, Pacific Northwest Writers Association, Melbourne Webfest, Las Vegas Screenwriting Conference, Roma Webfest, Monterey County Film Commission, Marseille Webfest, and The Writers Guild West.

Below is a partial list of the most requested workshop topics.These topics can be adjusted to provide valuable insight from the point of view of the writer or the development executive of a studio, network or production company. Topics can be condensed or expanded, as well as combined to form a Two-Hour, Half-Day, One-Day, Weekend, or Five-Day seminar. Additional topics can be factored in for a customized workshop/seminar suitable for your group or organization. Also, please be sure and take a look at the section on The Team Approach, which features an expansive and unique overview on screenwriting by utilizing team-teaching.

Please contact me for workshop and seminar rates.
