Pretty soon there will be that pre-holiday lull in the screenwriting world where nobody seems to be doing business -- not in New York. In December, Blake Snyder, author of a great screenwriting book called SAVE THE CAT will be doing a one day seminar in the city. It's only $100 and well worth it. I read his book early this year and loved it. It gave some very clear tips on improving my writing and script. I recommend this seminar and for the price you can't go wrong. For $140, he throws in his new Story Structure screenwriting software which usually sells for $50.

Date and Time: Saturday, December 9, 2006 9am-6pm (with a 1 hour lunch break)
