I’m teaching yet more UCLA Extension Writers’ Program classes in the coming months, but rather than clutter this blog with yet more writing-course posts, I’m consolidating all information about what I’m teaching on a page entitled, appropriately enough, Writing Classes, also available via link from the navbar at the top.
Archive for the ‘Teaching’ Category.
Sunday, August 26, 2012, 11am to 3pm, Young Hall Courtyard, UCLA Campus, Westwood
It’s a free day of 24 mini-classes and panel discussions on all kinds of creative writing: TV, features, novels, short stories, and more.
And an exhibit mall (opens at 10am) with terrific organizations such as PEN USA, the Organization of Black Screenwriters, the Writers Guild Foundation, and many more.
And an opportunity to register for most fall courses (including the one I’m teaching) at a 10% discount!
And a chance to see the panel I’m doing with three other TV writers / UCLA Extension instructors (Erica Byrne, Richard Hatem, and Charles Rosin) from 11:00 to 11:40am: Writing the One-Hour Drama Spec and Pilot.
The official description: “Get tips on how to choose a show to spec, how to capture its distinct voice and tone, and on the flip side, how to create a one-hour pilot that can be sustained for 100 episodes and beyond.” Or, we might just sit there and swap television horror stories for 40 minutes. Either way, it should be instructional and/or entertaining!

Hope to see you there!
