September Monthly Screenwriting Tips – Don’t Spank the Writer!

Too many arts educators beat up on neophytes, attack their efforts, belittle their hopes, and trash their dreams. They claim that it toughens artists for the rough-and-tumble world they hope to enter. At UCLA we say: bullshit. Students in our screenwriting program have won three Oscars and five Oscar nominations in the past four years. They’re writing the big franchise movies and the prestigious indie projects, too. To nurture writers, all you need is love.
