Top Ten Things Readers Hate - the Teleclass!

Hello, Wavers. Well, it had to come to pass. I'm teaching a teleclass. It should be a lot of fun and I've taught this particular class (live) a few times and participants generally wind up laughing, crying and coming terms with the errors of their ways all at once. All I know is the last time I taught this class I had a line out the door and standing room only.

Top Ten Things Readers Hate covers a lot of ground, starting with what the lives and jobs of readers are really like. Many screenwriters really don't have a clear picture of just who these gatekeepers of Hollywood are. Next, we discuss the top 10 list. Actually, our list goes to 11. Natch. We review the list of top 10 crazy-making no-nos and how to avoid them. Some are self-explanatory, like number 10:

Don't send weird stuff in the mail with your script.

Others are require a little more explanation, like number eight:

Don't write a schizophrenic script.

The class is Tuesday, July 14th at 7pm PST and you can take it from the comfort of your own home, in your pajamas. It doesn't get better than that. The cost for this 90-minute class is a mere $25 - a recession special for you recessionistas.

For questions or instructions on how to sign up, please email my intrepid assistant, Chaia.

I'd love to sign up, but I am afraid I will probably be at work then. I don't remember my schedule, so I don't know for sure, but I would really like to see this.

Unfortunately, I'm in class at the time. Is there any way I would be able to pay to get a recording or transcript?

What do we have to do to have Chaia answer her email?

@Eddie - be patient. I keep her very, very busy. :)
