New (free) Online Offerings To Keep You Connected and Writing
Who would have seen this plot twist coming? What a collective Dark Night of the Soul. In the midst of this crisis, we believe that maintaining our creative energy will keep us moving forward and bring us through. To that end, we are pleased to announce two new free offerings on Zoom.
Hearthside Salons: Inspired by Jazz-Age Paris salons where artists gathered to share ideas, we’re launching Hearthside Salons on Tuesday evenings. Each week will feature an inspiring and fascinating guest speaker, and offer you the opportunity to participate with questions. If you can’t join us live, talks will be archived as podcasts for later download. Register Here (on our website). Our first two speakers are:
- March 31 - Liz Hara - Emmy-winner/Sesame Street puppeteer, builder & writer: “Pursuing your passion and the necessity of failure”
- April 7 - Sarah Yeomans - Professor and Archeologist specializing in medicine and healthcare in the ancient world: “What historical pandemics can teach us about our present crisis”
Writers Lunch: We’re also launching a Writers Lunch on Wednesdays to support you, wherever you are in your writing process. If you want to share ideas, get feedback, or play with table-read scenes, JOIN US and stay connected.
Of course we continue to offer our regular coaching and feedback. If you want to book a stand-alone Skype, Zoom, or telephone coaching call, we are offering a quarantine special of $45 for a one-hour session, good through April. Just contact us HERE.
Be well, keep writing, we will get through this and have tons of great content ready to go when we do.
Status Update: Italy Screenwriting Retreats
We have sadly but unavoidably cancelled our springtime Villa Retreat in the beautiful Chianti wine region in Tuscany. At the moment we still hope to hold our flagship screenwriting retreat in September, in Orvieto, Italy. Of course, we're watching events closely--just as you all are--and will provide further updates as the crisis develops.
