Photo credit Destination360 UCLA Campus On the morning of Monday July 26, I will be giving a talk at UCLA to visiting film students from the University of Miami , thanks to my dear friend, Paul Lazarus , Director of the Motion Picture Program of the School of Communications there. I used to teach a graduate screenwriting class at UM before we moved to LA and greatly enjoyed it, it's a wonderful school. I'll be talking about what excites me about writing, the "path" (if that's what it was, it feels more like a leap through time) that brought me here - and about the movies, books, music and entertainment of all kinds that ignite true passion in me, the kind of things that really get your (and my) head spinning! If you are interested in attending, it starts at 9:30am. It's free, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details and directions.
