Actor, writer and director John Schneider will lead a weekend screenwriting workshop at John Schneider Studios in Holden.

Schneider, star of OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots,” is most-known for his role as Bo Duke in the late ’70s/early ’80s TV series “The Dukes of Hazzard.” After shooting a few movies in Louisiana and attending “Dukes” reunions in Livingston Parish, Schneider fell in love with the area and last year purchased the former Camp Singing Waters property in Holden and opened an independent studio to produce films.

Workshop participants will stay at the studio for the weekend, arriving at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 23. The workshop will end about 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 25. Cost of the workshop is $500. To register, send a message with phone number to the studio’s Facebook fan page, johnschneiderstudios, and a studio representative will be in touch about enrollment.
