The forum is not, technically, all that neglected. There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes in private workshop and classroom forums. But the public forum is terribly neglected.
I blame this on the great forum explosion of 2010. There was so much mad scrambling to do damage control and retrieval for the workshop and classes during that melt down, the public forum just got completely left in the scrambled tatters and never picked up again.
But there is a public forum.
It is a bit tragic is is so under utilized.
It exists pretty much entirely in one forum:
You can check out some of the topics if you’re inclined:

In AFW news, we’re now putting seats in chairs for the upcoming January classes. One of these classes is new, The First 30 Pages. It’s going to be great. Please reserve your seat early, new classes fill up pretty fast.
And in Stage 32 news, I’m going to be On Stage With RB this coming Tuesday doing an online interview with Stage 32’s Richard “RB” Botto, and the following week will be doing a next level webinar with Stage 32: Crash Course, High Concept Writing. It’s going to be great. I hope you can join me.

When I am not amusing myself creating Max Action Figure and Max Pop Queen Paper Doll, [hey I need sanity breaks shut up] or attempting to meet writing deadlines [I’m on it, Pooks!], or working on webinar compilations [on it, Shannon!], I am usually working my ass off at AFW. And we had a really cool month this month — and it’s not over yet, Austin Film Festival is around the corner so things may get more exciting still. Here is some of the current good news —
One of my baby writers just got hired for his first writing gig. Yay yay yay! Which is so cool. But also a secret. I don’t know what’s up with this new secret stuff. This has happened five times. My babies getting hired but it’s not announced. People used to send out press releases about hiring a writer to work on a project. Now it is all hush hush and non-public. I suspect this is about not wanting the writers to all show up at the studio cafeteria at the same table and share wage info. But I could be wrong. And it’s still so super cool another one of my workshoppers just got hired I’ll live with it.
The workshop launching these sassy secret careers is 5150. An international online screenwriting workshop. Interested? We have two open seats due to people being out on assignments. Find out more at :::5150:::
AND! I’m currently working on a webinar project with Stage 32 and Stage 32 is having a sassy party in Austin at the Austin Film Festival so if you are hitting the festival? I’ll be at the Stage 32 party on October 30th. Hit :::NEWS::: to find out how you can attend too. I’d love to see you.
