Screenwriting workshop at UCLA

If you agree that great movies begin with great scripts, here’s a lead that might prove useful to you.

Professor Richard Walter, who has chaired UCLA’s graduate screenwriting program for more than 30 years, will be offering a Screenwriting Workshop this summer (6 Mondays from June 23 through July 28) that is open for enrollment to UCLA students and non-UCLA students alike. It is especially designed for the summer session and appropriate for new writers and also for experienced writers. if you’re in Southern California during that period you might consider participating, in which each student receives 8 University of California credits that are transferable to other institutions.

I can vouch for the value of Professor Walter’s instruction because I attended his courses at UCLA in the mid-1990s. Thanks in large part to his instruction, I’ve had several scripts optioned and one produced. This is not a paid-for announcement! I’m posting it because Professor Walter has been a positive force in my life. I believe anyone attending his workshop is likely to come away enriched by the experience.
