The Writer's Group I Belong To Needs Another Good Writer --

Again, this group is cool because we have some really good actors cold-reading pages on the stage.

Every Monday night, 4 group members bring in up to 25 pages each, to be read by the actors and commented on by the other writers. We meet in a small theater in Studio City, something that has been going on for almost 5 years now.

There are 16 writers in the group, so you'll be responsible for bringing in pages about every 5-6 weeks or so, because the last Monday of the month is for a full read of a script that has been workshopped through the group.

The big responsibility here is to be able to give this group most of your Monday nights, and show up at least 75-80% of the time. Everyone is friendly, though the notes are generally incisive; you need to be able to smile as your script pages are dissected. Dues are $30 a month.

Writers don't have to be amazing; this group is about learning to a certain extent, and honing one's craft. Though you will be asked to submit a script, and it will need to show some writing skill.

Applicants must have completed and registered 3 screenplays. No TV scripts, multiple authors or adaptations accepted. If you are interested, you can e-mail me and I'll tell you where you can send your scripts.

Wish I was in L.A., I'd sign up in a jiffy! Still, thanks for extending the invite, Scott. You're friendliness is so underated, and it helps me, ever so slightly, to visualize world peace.

I wish I didn't have school on Monday night.
