Hey, all–

Just wanted to let you all know… I’m teaching my “Pilot Writing” course for Mediabistro again this month, and if you’re in L.A., I’d love to see you all there!  This seminar is a blast… it’s one of my favorite classes to teach… and you’ll learn everything you need to know about writing pilots in 3 hours!  Plus, we’re having a special guest this time… Stacy Traub, who created ABC‘s Notes from the Underbelly a couple years ago.  (I always show the Notes pilot in class because I think it’s such a well-constructed pilot, and I managed to convince Stacy to come by and chat about… so it’s gonne be an extra-special class this time.)  Here’s the scoop…
