JUST WRITE
Weekly Writers Workshop

GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY
AND
ONTO THE PAGE

Do you struggle with procrastination, discipline issues or writer’s block?

Do you have a screenplay, a pilot, a memoir or a novel you’ve been talking about writing, dreaming about writing and pretty much not writing?

Do you worry that what you write is not good enough, not interesting enough, not important enough to show to the world?

Award-winning playwright, humorist, author, screenwriter Dylan Brody’s weekly writer’s workshop provides the solution

Whatever the cause of your literary log jam, Dylan’s calming presence, his simple instructions, the support of the small classroom community and somewhat larger online community, and the systems he has built to guide writers will free the creative flow and let you get out of your head, get out of your own way and get onto the page.

“Dylan is extremely patient and is there to guide you through, no matter the problem.”
                Averie Maddox, writer/performer Keep Me Abreast

It's time to get working on that project you keep talking (or dreaming) about writing.

Dylan's encouraging and supportive approach allows you to set aside distractions, silence your inner critic, and get on track to meeting your personal writing goals. His toolkit includes techniques he has assembled over a lifetime of work in the literary, performing, and martial arts, creating a powerful system that frees the flow of personal expression in your most natural and authentic voice.

All coaching programs include

  • Regular phone sessions to discuss progress and provide accountability

  • Customized worksheets to strengthen the writing muscles

  • Access to an ever-growing online library of Mr. Brody’s worksheets

  • An editorial pass or punch-up pass (where applicable)

  • Flexible payment options


Get started. Then get finished.

While many writers merely need Mr. Brody's help in getting started, others realize that their challenge revolves around completion.  This is why Mr. Brody offers both short- and long-term coaching options.

PAY ONLY FOR WHAT YOU NEED

  • Six-month or year long commitments can keep you on track with a project, sometimes into its second or third drafts, or carry you from one project straight into another.

  • To-completion commitments can be set up so that Mr. Brody's services remain active and available until the first draft of your project is done, until you feel ready to attack a next draft on your own or until you complete a final, submission draft. It's all up to you how far you want him to help you go.

  • Month-by-month, Pay-as-you-go pricing has allowed clients to grab Mr. Brody's attention and assistance for a month when they need it, go about their business and then return when next the Muse abandons them or their story eludes them. It's a great way to get some fast support when you need it without committing to a lengthy contract.

Don't worry. Mr. Brody uses an actual modern computer when he ghost writes. But this makes a much more writerly impression, photographically speaking.

Obviously a ghostwriter cannot ask for testimonials. Confidentiality is what makes it ghostwriting and not simply freelancing.

If the idea of sitting down and writing makes your head hurt or your heart ache, you've just found the solution to your sorrows. Mr. Brody can take your ideas, whether they exist only as vague notions and scattered images or a beat-by-beat prewrite that you just can't seem to get onto the page, and fashion them into the book or script that you want to take out into the world.

He has ghost written novels, autobiographies, memoirs, screenplays, and television pilots.  He has ghost written one solo show and jokes for dozens (maybe hundreds) of stand-up comics.

 

If you prefer the pleasure of the process, if you want to write the piece yourself but you could use a little bit of support, that can be arranged!  Active Voice Productions provides a myriad of options, from personalized coaching to weekly workshops and downloadable tools. Mr. Brody genuinely wants you to get your project written. He will work with you to make it possible on your terms.
