– Alan Watt (founder of LA Writers Lab)

Hi, I’m Al Watt—novelist, screenwriter, and founder of L.A. Writers’ Lab where I teach the 90-DAY NOVEL and 90-DAY SCREENPLAY WORKSHOPS. I teach a process of getting the story from your imagination to the page by marrying the wildness of your mind to the rigor of story structure.

If this sounds like your goal, you’ve come to the right place. I look forward to working with you soon.
