AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR AND SCREENWRITER ALAN WATT TAKES HIS 90-Day NOVEL & MEMOIR WORKSHOP ONLINE
Los Angeles, CA (May 2010) — For years, Alan Watt, creative director of LA Writers Lab, has successfully guided writers to complete a first draft of a novel or memoir through his 90-Day Novel Workshop. From actress Rebecca De Mornay (Wedding Crashers) and screenwriter Donna Powers (The Italian Job) to accomplished authors Frank B. Wilderson, III (winner of the 2008 American Book Award for Incognegro), hundreds have benefited using Alan’s technique. Starting July 6, 2010, his popular writing workshop is available online.
Each weekly 90-minute lesson (via teleconference) includes a lecture, several stream-of-consciousness writing exercises and one-on-one discussion to illustrate the principles. Alan never imposes his ideas but rather facilitates the writer in finding the story that lives within. Writers also receive a comprehensive daily letter keeping them connected to the process as well as logging on to a private “group forum” to stay accountable and document their daily experience.
“There is no ‘right way’ to tell a story, but through this process I can help you bypass your idea of the story for the real one, the one that’s screaming to get out,” says Alan.
“The idea of bringing a first draft of a novel to fruition seemed too daunting and overwhelming to even consider until I was introduced to Al’s 90-Day Novel Class,” says actress Rebecca De Mornay. “His methodology is deep and precise, and helps unearth unconscious themes and characters in you that let the story almost tell itself.”
Now through June 29, sign up early for a discount of $60. The 90-day Novel & Memoir Workshop Online is just $385.
Alan Watt is an LA-based novelist and screenwriter. His bestselling novel, Diamond Dogs (Little, Brown), has won numerous awards including France’s 2004 Prix Printemps (best foreign novel). He currently teaches at the SFS Theater on Melrose Avenue, near Larchmont Boulevard.
