The 90-Day Novel © Telecourse is an intensive workshop designed to guide the writer from initial idea to the completion of a first draft. It's a live class, meeting twice a week, where I'll work one-on-one with writers to illustrate the principles to the group. This program is available for both fiction writers and memoirists, and is open to writers at all levels.
This workshop is pay-what-you-can with a portion of all proceeds benefiting
The Book Truck, a literacy program for Los Angeles at-risk youths.
Instructor Alan Watt is the Creative Director of L.A. Writers' Lab, bestselling author, and writer/director of Interior Night. He founded L.A. Writers’ Lab in 2002 as a place for writers to deepen their craft by learning to marry the rigor of structure to the freedom of the muse. He has taught everyone from award-winning authors to A-list screenwriters, journalists, poets, actors, professional athletes, war veterans, housewives, doctors, lawyers, television showrunners, Emmy-winning directors, first-time writers, and anyone else with a story to tell.
