Wednesday Writing Retreat

Let’s write together for a boost of writing magic this fall…

Spend your day immersed in your current work-in-progress, with the company and support of other writers.

We’ll meet through the day over Zoom to check in about how our writing is going, support each other, and celebrate (or commiserate!) along the way.

I’ll be there to provide coaching and guidance.

One great writing day a month … no matter how busy things get.

Making Writing Actually Happen: Build a Productive Writing Life

December 1 to December 8

Online course at Script University.

If you aren’t making progress on your screenplay, or you feel blocked every time you sit down to write, it’s time to break the chain of unproductive writing.

In this week-long intensive at Script University, you’ll first watch and discuss (via discussion boards) a three-part video lecture exploring 10 habits and techniques that will keep your writing schedule consistent and productive. I provide coaching and support during this intensive.

I provide feedback on weekly assignments and course discussions.

Wednesday Writing Retreat

Dive into a container of protected, sacred writing time

Spend your day immersed in your current work-in-progress, with the company and support of other writers.
