I’m excited to be teaching my new workshop again in the West Los Angeles area—freeway close!

“SO, YOU WANT TO BE A SCREENWRITER? NOW WHAT?”

script page

Sunday, February 23, 2014, 9 AM – 5 PM

Follow me on FaceBook or Twitter (@scriptcat).

Available for small groups to 10 screenwriters maximum.

The workshop is a comprehensive one-day class designed for the beginning or intermediate screenwriter who may or may not have completed a few screenplays and have started on their journey toward being a professional.  In a business where they stop reading after the first typo or format mistake, you need solid guidance to help navigate the choppy waters of Hollywood.

I will share my fifteen plus years of experience to teach you the practices that helped me to build and establish a career as a working screenwriter in Hollywood.  You’ll learn my techniques and disciplines — through solid examples, discussions and handouts — on how to live an authentic screenwriter’s life before, during and after the first draft in this “how to” survival guide to stay in the game—at the top of your game as you slog it out in Hollywood’s trenches.

Spend a day learning what it takes to survive on your long marathon journey to success. The classroom has a refreshment area, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, water and wireless internet access. There will be a short morning break, an hour break for lunch, and a short afternoon break. Bring your lunch or buy your lunch from the many places in the neighborhood. Ample street parking.

$150.00

12304 Santa Monica Boulevard, Suite 325, LA, CA 90025

Syllabus

“Fame and money are gifts given to us only after we have gifted the world with our best, our lonely, our individual truths.”—Ray Bradbury

“Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear?”― Lao Tzu

“… the payoff of playing-the-game-for-money is not the money (which you may never see anyway, even after you turn pro).  The payoff is that playing the game for money produces the proper professional attitude.  It inculcates the lunch-pail mentality, the hard-core, hard-head, hard-hat state of mind that shows up for work despite rain or snow or dark of night and slugs it out day after day.”—Steven Pressfield, “The War of Art”

“Tomorrow morning the critic will be gone, but the writer will still be there facing the blank page. Nothing matters but that he keep working.” —Steven Pressfield

“Work every day.  No matter what has happened the day or night before, get up and bite on the nail.” –  Hemingway
