This course is designed to get fledgling or rusty writers to become more productive. Every person knows they ought to work “regularly”, but what does that really mean to your life? How do you become the productive, confident, flexible artist you want to be?
Part of the skill set being taught is to devise a schedule that the participant can and will adhere to. So, collecting data and insight and modifying the work plan is not just allowed, it is vital. By the end of the sessions, students will be their own best coaches, able to anticipate and accommodate the usual bumps in the road without giving up their practice. This class will be help transform the outlook and careers of filmmakers and screenwriters alike.
Here’s what the co-creator of award-winning NURSE JACKIE had to say about Lisa:
“Lisa Loop is one of the most kick-ass, perceptive, fun and motivating people I’ve ever met. Every writer needs a coach like Lisa. She’s like a secret weapon I would prefer other people not know about.”
- Evan Dunsky, Television Producer, CSI; Co-Creator, Nurse Jackie
