Do you know Jen? If not, you need to. She is amazing. I met Jen via FB a couple years back when I was submitting to every fellowship and writing a spec every 10 weeks or so, and original stuff. Though at the time I couldn’t afford to take her workshop and or didn’t make it into WOTV, Jen has been a constant source of inspiration and teaching for me.
I was at an event at the Paley center and Jen sat in front of me and to my surprise she turned around and said hello-she knew who I was, just from all our communication on FB. I love that about Jen she really takes the time to get to know people.
Since then I have taken two of her weekend workshops that literally changed the way I write.
I am now working on a new show in development and as writer, so I don’t have the time to take her 10 week workshop coming up this spring. *see below
Today I was reading her monthly newsletter and she announced this brilliant new idea.
