Mark June 5th, 6th & 7th on your calendar. And then take Zak Penn’s advice (Behind Enemy Lines, X-Men 2, X-Men 3, The Incredible Hulk, The Avengers): “My advice is…take Robert McKee’s class. It was essential to my success as a screen writer.”

Two-time Academy Award-winning screenwriter William Goldman wrote, in his most recent book, “It’s three full days over a single weekend, and no one feels cheated when he’s done. I wish he’d been around when I started writing for a living.”
