LB: The March-April TVWriter™ Advanced Workshop has 3 Openings

lbwriterbiggerA quick Word to the Wise that the 157th TVWriter™ Advanced Online TV & Film Writing Workshop will start in about a week and a half, on March 30, 2016.

As of this announcement I have room for a whole passel of students. Well, 3 more anyway, so if you’ve been thinking about joining us, or were in the Workshop but left and now want to come back, hey, now’s a good time.

This running of the Advanced Workshop costs $140 and meets every Wednesday night for 4 weeks. There’s probably a whole bunch more that you want to know, but I’m keeping this quick, so head on over to the Advanced Online Workshop Page or email me ASAP so we can clear up your questions.

LB: The April TVWriter™ Advanced Workshop has One Opening

lbwriterbiggerTonight is the last meeting of the 148th session of TVWriter™’s Advanced TV & Film Online Workshop. (At least, I think that’s the official name. Official names have, I admit, never meant very much to me.)

148 sessions? Over a dozen years? I’d better try not to think about that because if I start seeing what I’ve been doing as any kind of rut my Normal Life Avoidance System might kick in and…well, then there’d never be a 149th session.

LB: March TVWriter™ Advanced Workshop has One Opening


Nothing’s certain in this world, not even the number of students who will be taking the TVWriter™ Advanced Workshop that starts March 26th, a week from today.

Which means that regardless of where we end up with the students who’ve already said they’re signing on, I’m looking for 1 more to round out the class, so if you’ve been in one of the 147 (or is it 148?) 4-week sessions we’ve already had over the past 15 years and want to come back, as so many have, or have been thinking about taking it but haven’t fully committed yet, now seems like a good time to ease on in. read article

October TVWriter™ Advanced Workshop Still has Openings!

writersm1Who’d a thunk it? The next TVWriter™ Advanced Online Workshop starts October 2nd, a week from today, and we have three openings left.

If you’re ready to dive in and learn more at each of the four meetings than you ever thought you’d learn in, oh, a whole semester in a normal writing class, then now’s a perfect time to sign on and be amazed by Our Beloved Leader, Larry Brody, the dude behind this site.

Editing/cutting down on wordage is everything to LB, so we’re going to follow his lead. Which means that instead of going into all those details, details, details about what the Workshop is and how it operates, we’re sending you straight to the Advanced Online Workshop Page. read article
