Screenwriting Tricks for Authors workshops 2012

Yes, I will have a new craft post up this week, possibly later this afternoon, but people have been asking about what Screenwriting Tricks for Authors workshops are going to be happening this year and where, so I'm posting the list so far.

February 25, 2012 - Long Beach, CA
Passion and Prose
The Westin, Long Beach
Saturday, 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM

This is not a Screenwriting Tricks workshop per se, but many of the authors attending this great first time event are scheduling little adjunct meetings and chats (in the bar, of course!) at the conference, so I'm happy to do a brainstorming session with anyone registered at the event who wants to talk about their WIPs. Just drop me an a mail at alex AT alexandrasokoloff DOT com and let me know you're attending.

Hosted by the wonderful Mysterious Galaxy Books!



March 29-April 1: Sacramento, California

Left Coast Crime has asked me to do a 2-hour Screenwriting Tricks workshop for their Thursday craft conference in Sacramento. Details here.



May 11-12, Strongsville, Ohio

An all-day and half the night Screenwriting Tricks Workshop for my awesome friend Erin McCarthy's RWA Chapter; non-chapter members welcome to sign up for the conference as well.



June 17-22, 2012: Canyon, Texas

For anyone looking for a writing intensive with lots of hands-on, personal feedback, this is the one. Class size limited to 15.

I did this workshop last year and loved it; I think it's the most successful workshop I've ever taught because the entire class got so intensely involved with everyone else's stories - you could see improvement in everyone's storylines by the hour.

Romance Writers of America has asked me to do a 2-hour Screenwriting Tricks for Authors workshop with a special Young Adult focus at their YA craft conference on Wednesday, July 25.

Shoot! Nothing in Seattle?! Maybe I can talk my husband into making a trip to Australia! :)

Alexandra Sokoloff said...

That's the spirit, Jenni - come to Australia!

Angelica R. Jackson said...

Ooo, I might be able to make the Sacramento one!

Alexandra Sokoloff said...

Do it, Angelica! LCC is a really hip conference, wonderful fun.

Sarra Cannon said...

So sad to miss the YA focused talk at RWA this year! My baby is due in mid-June, though, so no way I can fly to CA in July. I'm sure it will be an awesome talk! Do you know if it will be recorded?

Alexandra Sokoloff said...

Sarra, what lovely news, congratulations!

I'm sure RWA will be recording the workshop, they always have recorded my workshops before. But I'll also be trying out the material on you guys here - I'm very excited about the topic.
