On the off-chance that you aren’t regular subscribers to TVWriter™’s brilliant, amazing, and often highly erratic e-mail list, here’s the latest scoop on what’s happening here.
Especially the bits about People’s Pilot 2019…oh, and LB’s next Master Class.
And now, before we completely lose ourselves, here’s the latest scoop:
TVWRITER™ NEWSLETTER – Spring 2019
A WORD FROM LB
It’s the middle of Spring, and the good news here on the Olympic Peninsula across Puget Sound from Seattle is that the temperature is in the high 60s and the sun is shining unobscured. Good signs, both of them, and rare to boot.
This is an exciting time for TVWriter™ because we’re gearing up for our annual People’s Pilot competition, which opens for entries in just 11 days, on June 1, 2019. This running of the PP is the 28th because I had a lot more energy and concentration in earlier years and was able to hold it semi-annually for awhile.
I’m proud of all the new writers the contest has helped over the years. Men and woman who have worked, or are working, on the writing staffs of shows like STRANGER THINGS, WESTWORLD, MOM, NARCOS, TIME AFTER TIME, GREY’S ANATOMY, THE LEFTOVERS, BASTARD EXECUTIONER, ANIMAL PRACTICE, KILLER WOMEN, NTSF:SD:SUV, GIRLFRIENDS, FILTHY PREPPY TEENS, MELROSE PLACE, THE GOOD DOCTOR, LETHAL WEAPON, SNEAKY PETE, CHICAGO PD, CHICAGO FIRE, PERSON OF INTEREST, THE WALKING DEAD, RIZZOLI AND ISLES, COLONY, ONCE UPON A TIME, THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES, SMALLVILLE, ROME, BIRDS OF PREY, PRIVATE PRACTICE, SNOWFALL, and still more.
Putting on the PP takes a lot of time and effort. I feel like a CPA during tax season for the run-up, duration and judging, I’m not bringing this up to get anyone’s sympathy, just to alert you that I may not be able to respond to emails and calls and such as quickly as usual, nor be hanging out in the usual places (sorry, Facebook friends, but I may not be able to read and comment as often, nor as cleverly – well, I think I’m clever – as usual).
It’s not a situation I’m happy about, but look at the bright side. I’ll still be tweeting my snarky brain out from @TVWriterCom, supervising the material appearing at TVWriter.Com and, of course, writing for the site whenever possible.
And all of you who enter People’s Pilot 2019 will hear from me via various announcements for the next several months, and when you get my Feedback on your entries.
Oh, before I forget, everything you need to know about People’s Pilot 2019 is HERE:
TV WRITER UNIVERSITY SUMMER SCHEDULE
My Master Class in TV & Film Writing has grown by leaps and bounds, which means it’s still a happening thing no matter how busy I am.
The current Master Class, my 45th, ends May 30th, and the next one starts May 14th, with 1 space remaining.
I usually limit each Master Class group to 3 pro or pro-quality writers so I can give the participants the attention they deserve, but in order to accommodate the demand this time around I added an extra class night for 3 more members. In other words, it behooves y’all to get in touch ASAP about the remaining space…or to convince me to add a second group again.
Oh, and if you’re worried about paying the full fee, don’t let that stop you. The TV Writer Universiy internships are back! Get in touch and we’ll talk about how we can help each other!

That’s it till next time. Keep writing!
