Now let us all praise UCLA

I'm thrilled to be on the faculty of UCLA and every year they have a fabulous Writers Faire where you can connect with writers, courses and get inspiration--and all for free. Here are the details:

Sunday, September 7 UCLA Extension Writers' Program proudly presents Writers Faire 2008 11 am-3 pm UCLA Campus: Young Hall Courtyard Admission is free. Parking on campus in Lot 2 is $9.

Be our guest at the ninth annual Writers Faire featuring 24 free mini-panels and lectures in fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, writing for the youth market, playwriting, publishing, feature film writing, and television writing. Writers of all levels are welcome!

Listen to 70 instructors/writers as they participate in lively discussions about the art, craft, business, and life of writing.
Enroll in most fall courses at a ten percent discount (advanced courses not included).

Get one-on-one advisement on courses and certificate programs.
Learn more about Los Angeles-area MFA programs and speak to representatives from five top schools.

Become familiar with Blackboard, the platform used in all Writers’ Program online courses.

Watch Final Draft representatives demonstrate their software (discounts are available).

Visit with more than a dozen professional and community organizations and writing-allied businesses, all of whom share a common goal of promoting writing in Los Angeles.

I don't suppose you're by any chance going to fly across the country and make a personal appearance...? :)

I volunteered at this either last year or the year before. My sole job was to stand in the middle of the sidewalk on a straight stretch and assure people that they were headed in the right direction. For that, the Writer's Program gave me $125 off of a class. UCLA rocks!

Oh Lisa, if I were, I would take you out to lunch!
