Hey all,

The Guild's having their big picket o' the week on Thursday, at Disney. So get prepared for SPOOKY WEDNESDAY!

Here's the text again:

As you all know by now: Writers of various genres join us each week, making themselves available to discuss story, structure and everything in between to aspiring writers. All you have to do is come out and pick up a sign!

Warning: This Teaching Thursday might scare you to death! First off it's not even on Thursday -- how frightening is that? It's SPOOKY WEDNESDAY! Not sure you're witty enough to write Sam and Dean Winchester's dialogue? The writers from "Supernatural" can help! Want to know how to raise the stakes for a Vampire detective? Writers from "Moonlight" know! Worried that your spouse may be a cyborg? The writers from "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" probably won't be able to help (but they will be on hand for your other brilliant questions!). Yes, writers from these shows (plus a few surprise guests!) will be there to answers these questions and more...

The usual disclaimers:

If you're a writer for a genre drama (or have been one) and want to show up, please know:

No one will solicit you to read their brilliant spec script. No one will ask for your phone number or email address. No one will expect anything of you other than your ability to answer some story/structure/dialogue questions.

If you're an aspiring writer who wants to take advantage of getting some truly great advice from the folks who have lived, eaten, breathed it:

Definitely join us -- all you need to do is pick up a sign! What you should not do: solicit the writers to read your brilliant spec script. Do not ask for phone numbers or email addresses. Do expect brilliance, because that's what you'll get!

SPOOKY WEDNESDAY: February 6th, 9 AM-12 PM, Warner Bros Gate 2.

See you there!

As always, hoping that the writers get a fair deal...

Suggestions, questions and concerns can be directed to wbteachingthursdays@gmail.com

Apologies for any inconvenience!

    That sounds AWESOME! I can't wait. Thank you so much for setting this up.

    Is is OK if I bring some flyers advertising the "Adopt A Writer" project?

    Thank you! Please note the date change, though!

    I'm not sure what Adopt A Writer is, but I think it's probably best if we keep it to just the teaching, if that's all right? :)

    You can learn more about Adopt A Writer here: adoptawriter.wordpress.com. Basically we are a group of bloggers who interview lesser known and less established writers in order to put a more human face on the strike.

    I don't want to break the rules though so I will wait until the class is over before I start passing out flyers.

    I love your Adopt A Writer site -- the interviews are great!

    I think the best idea for it would be to put some flyers on the table there and let people pick them up, rather than handing them out. :)

    Look forward to seeing you there!
