Act One is holding one of its world famous Screenwriting Weekends in Vegas next month. Strangely, I ended up getting one of the faculty slots (did I say 'slots'?) for the weekend, along with my friend and Act One faculty and Board member Jan "the Maven" Batchler.
I'll be doing a talk on Christians and entertainment Friday night that will be open to the general public. Then, Jan and I will do tag-team screenwriting teaching on Saturday. We will also be available for one-on-one meetings with conference participants on Saturday.
So, come have some REAL fun Superbowl Weekend! Here's the relevant FAQ's...
