Speaking of motivation, we have a bunch of classes starting this week
that will help you find the best, most productive writer inside of you.
Showcase yourself as a writer! Craft an essay that will mystify an audience in Moth Me Baby
starting this Sun., Oct. 21 with Pinata curator and Pushcart Prize nominee Christine Schoenwald. Or, launch your acting career with an amazing one-person show with award-winning performer and writer Lauren Weedman in Get Truthy
starting this Tues., Oct. 23! Both classes include show bookings.
If screenwriting is more your thing, learn what it takes to craft an irresistible pilot in Writing A Pilot That Can Fly
with Emmy-award winning writer Jeff Kahn
starting Mon., Oct. 22. Jeff’s sold 13 pilots and worked on every major network. He’ll read your entire pilot and give you a one-on-one consult at the end of class!
Also, this Sun., Oct. 21, the amazing Annabelle Gurwitch (Huffington Post, More, LA Times) is back with Punch Up Your Prose
. Annabelle’s class will add TNT to your writing. She’ll show you how to blow up small details and flip descriptions in surprising ways to end your stories with a BANG!
A full list of our classes is below. Click on the links to sign up before they are full, my darlings.
Note: classes with an asterix (*) will be held at our new, posh Westside location in Westwood!

I am going to write about that super cute chubby baby I saw the other day, or maybe about when I had that fat wad of cash in my hands (for 2.5 seconds) or that amazing full fat ice cream, or maybe…
