Christopher Lockhart will host a PITCH IN with the ALAMEDA WRITERS' GROUP on Saturday, December 3, from 9:45 AM - noon. Come pitch your idea for feedback or listen and learn from others.
The AWG meets in the Upstairs Auditorium at Glendale Central Library - 222 E. Harvard St. (at Maryland), Glendale. The event is FREE.
For more information visit: www.alamedawritersgroup.org
Personally I wouldn't pitch my stuff in front of other writer -- you don't see me blogging about my stuff -- but it's always good to listen. And you can't beat free.
This is the sort of thing that is always going on in LA somewhere, and one of many reasons why living in LA helps you become a screenwriter. There's just a lot more information floating around than there is in, say, St. Louis, or Montreal. Once you've been in L.A. a while, it is possible to move elsewhere, but it is harder to start elsewhere. Depending on who you are, usually much harder.
If you go, see if you can meet some people at your level, and start up a writing group.
