Calling all writers!!

Have you always wanted to write something but weren”™t sure how to go about it? Do you have an idea that has not yet been fleshed out? If you”™re not sure if you have a compelling story to tell, then perhaps a writer”™s workshop can help you find one!

Watch your ideas develop and take shape by joining a Spring Writing Workshop presented by the LA Writers Center and guided by Che”™Rae Adams.

Starting on Tuesday, March 9th, the 2010 Spring Writing Workshop is being held at the Lankershim Arts Center, in NoHo.  Classes will be held every Tuesday eve from 7″”10pm.

This 8-week workshop is open to beginner writers as well as more experienced writers as well as everyone in-between. The only requirement is a desire to write and a commitment to the process.

Over the course of eight weeks, this hands-on workshop is designed to help you get your script ready for production by taking a close look at effective dramatic writing.

The course is for writers who want to develop a script, or rewrite an existing script or even finish an incomplete screenplay.  It may include anything from a few scenes to an entire draft. Also, play scripts (including solo shows) as well as screenplays are welcome.

This course includes in-class exercises and the reading and discussing of participants’ scripts in a supportive setting. The instructor will introduce proven formulas and exercises which can be applied to the writing process. Writers will be encouraged to explore their own intentions and point of view, while learning how best to get their script produced.

Come and learn how to shape your ideas with Che”™Rae Adams.
