A couple notes to pass on for Writer's Center members and readers of this blog:
Writer's Center member Sean Brijbasi recently acquired the publisher Pretend Genius (who'll have a booth at next week's Small Press Fair at The Writer's Center).
Part of Pretend Genius is www.writethis.com, and it is going to start accepting submissions again and this time they'll be paying $50 for each accepted piece.
Go here: http://www.writethis.com
or here: http://www.pretendgenius.com/
It's a good looking site.
Also, The DC Area Screenwriter’s Group is looking for new members. Here's some text that was sent to me by a Writer's Center member and a member of this group, Jamie White:
About us: We are a group of writers and film enthusiasts living in the District of Columbia Metropolitan Area. The group’s primary goal is to support members by providing constructive feedback to each other by sharing our writing projects in a caring, honest, and open manner.
About You: Are you serious about screenwriting? Do you welcome constructive feedback on your scripts? Are you willing to read the work of others and offer thoughtful advice? Can you commit to meeting once a month?
If you answered yes to these questions please submit a writing sample and contact information to: DCAScreenwriters@yahoo.com. You will be contacted shortly with details about the date, time, and location of our next meeting.
