Workshop: New and Emerging Screenwriters: Westcoast Screenwriting

West Coast Screenwriting asks,

“Are you feeding your inner screenwriter?”

In August, West Coast Screenwriting principals, Keith Digby (Time Exposures) and Brian Paisley (Lies Like Truth) will hold a ‘Weekend Blitz’ workshop for NINE aspiring screenwriters.

Yes, that’s right – there will only be NINE participants, maximum, in the class. This course is not only specific to success in the craft of screenwriting, but also uniquely personal in the assessment and development of each individual participant’s work.

Location: Victoria Film Commission Offices, Inner Harbour, Victoria.

Dates:
Friday August 21st (evening) to Sunday August 23rd (late afternoon),

For new and emerging screenwriters, bring your idea/concept, outline or unfinished screenplay. Novel and short story writers, who might be thinking of adapting one of their works, bring a one-page outline and watch its progress to the screen.

Are you interested in taking this high-power, team-taught 12-hour course?

Take the plunge.
Take the workshop!
Sponsored by The Victoria Film Commission.

Teachers: Why You Should Invite Me Into Your School

I’ve been doing quite a few talks this month in schools/colleges/libraries and I’ve been really well-received. Although self-promotion is not my forte, I came across this accolade in The T/L Report about one of the workshops I did a couple of weeks ago. Thanks to Northern Voice, I knew I should blog about it, so that all the teachers out there who are looking for great speakers/creative writing workshop leaders, will contact me and invite me into their schools.

On another note, I got this really great rejection email from the Canada Council. It was titled: Unsuccessful But Recommended: It went on to say:

The assessment committee for the program, has recently completed its deliberations, and we regret to inform you that your application was not successful. Although the assessment committee recommended your application, a grant could not be recommended due to a lack of funds.

Usually, I am just

Unsuccessful

Only a Canadian writer could see the silver lining in this…

Oh, well — Maybe next year, there will be enough cash for me.
