Cyber - what?

Rouge Wavers know what a huge fan the W is of UCLA Writer's Program classes, both online and on the ground. I am totally, unabashedly in love with the quality of this program; the instructors are spectacular and I have never been anything short of gratefully amazed whenever I have taken a class. The online classes are quite easy to navigate, too. This from the person who until recently couldn't figure out who to put an accent over a letter and who has no idea how the interweb works. In my defense though, does anybody? Like, really know how all that information travels invisibly through space to show up magically on your computer screen as teeny little words and pictures?

Anyway - so when I received this email from the program today I wanted to be sure and share it with all my Wavers:

So are these classes workshop-based with an instructor's guidance? I checked out the course descriptions and it sounds really intriguing...

Hi Tyler - yes, the classes all have instructors who post lectures, review your work and are there for you every step of the way.

I too have taken many of the courses online at UCLA. They are the best out there and their online courses are superb.

Especially look for instructors:

Paul Chitlik
John Doolittle
Scott Myers

Just to name a few that were wonderful.

How about the UCLA Professional Screenwriting Program? Is that any good?
