Gourmet Writing Classes

Are you a writer AND a foodie living in Los Angeles?

Here are some delicious classes going on at Writing Pad, a gourmet writing school in the Silver Lake neighborhood in L.A. Both have excellent instructors and include delicious tasting plates.

1. He Said, She Said (Sun., Jan. 24)
2. Delectable Dramas and Scrumptious Sitcoms Pt II (Sat., Feb. 6)

He Said, She Said
No more “Me Tarzan, You Jane.” It’s time for the battle of the sexes, Writing Pad style. Through playful, in-class writing exercises and a mini-craft lecture, you’ll learn how to create three-dimensional male and female characters and relationships that go beyond stereotypes. We’ll help you write convincingly from the opposite gender. You won’t need whiskey and bullfights to unleash your literary machismo or a lavender scented facial to understand the feminine mystique! By the end of the class, you’ll have written a short piece that successfully channels both the Ernest Hemingway and Jane Austen inside of you.

Menu: Gourmet Sliders (Angus Beef or Portabella Mushroom) and Buttercream, Hazelnut, Chocolate Ganache Marjolaines
Instructor: Aaron Henne

Delectable Dramas and Scrumptious Sitcoms Pt II
Ever thought your quirky co-workers or soapy love life could make a great TV show? They can be! With brand new writing exercises, we’ll help you mine your life for the kinds of characters and stories that networks, producers, and audiences find irresistible. Whether you want to create the next Mad Men or Modern Family, we'll help you brainstorm an exciting premise, and you’ll learn what producers and execs look for in sell-able pilots and series. By the time you leave, you'll have drafted a one-sheet to pitch your next sitcom, drama, or reality show.

Note: You do not need to take Delectable Dramas and Scrumptious Sitcoms Pt I to participate in this class. Includes new writing exercises and mini-lecture.
