I love Writers Store. You may think to yourself, what do I need a whole store for, don’t I just need a computer and some paper? Maybe a pen or pencil? Technically, yes. But when you need help, when you don’t know what to do with what you have just written, Writers Store is where you turn. This being Los Angeles, screenwriting is the main focus, but there are plenty of other resources for novel writing, memoir and poetry as well as books on how to get your own books published.
The store’s website also has a sign up for their informative newsletter, a Writers University as well as other seminars and workshops and a full list of books and items to purchase online if you don’t live in LA.
The store also presents speakers on a regular basis to discuss their craft. Recently my husband (a screenwriter) and I heard Ted Griffin (Ocean’s 11) and Jim Uhls (Fight Club) talk about what they do and how they do it. The setting was a small room behind the store so the conversation was intimate.
What? You don’t have a script mallet?
And you call yourself a writer. [shaking head]
