At a time when the political world is in turmoil, if you ever fancied yourself as the architect of the fictional corridors of power you can now sign up for a screenwriting master class with none other than The West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin. The Oscar-winning writer of The Social Network is set to reveal his walk-and-talk trade secrets to writers all over the world for the price of €82.

The American magazine Vanity Fair outlined what students can expect, with Sorkin divulging his “rules of storytelling, dialogue, and character development,” across 25 video lessons, a 30-page workbook, and interactive assignments. You can watch the trailer for the classes below:

“There’s a great tradition of writers from one generation giving a hand to the next group coming up – a tradition I got a lot of benefit from. I think new screenwriters will come away from the MasterClass with a new sense of confidence,” Sorkin says.
