You're welcome to attend the last LiveRead/LA of 2017 on December 11th. Our Shawn Boxe - a very talented writer on the hit HBO series ‘Silicon Valley’!

Two winning scripts from our screenwriting contest will read live by talented actors, followed by notes/feedback from Shawn, our Director Tim Schildberger, and the audience. All are welcome to the event, and don't forget we encourage audience feedback. Following the reading is our Q&A with Shawn, where you can ask her any/ all questions about this crazy business.

Attendee Testimonials:
  • " THIS IS A BRILLIANT IDEA. It’s very needed and everyone involved is benefitting.... having an industry guest is everything. Also, live-streaming is cool for people like me (Midwesterner) who can never truly convince my parents that writing is a 'job'" - Flannery M.
  • " Wanted to drop a line and say how much I enjoyed the evening... It's that great combo of entertaining/informational/social. I was really impressed by the notes offered up as well. I'll be back - both in person and with submissions." - Paul L.
  • " Writers gathering to help, inspire, suffer, and bleed with other writers... thoroughly enjoyable time!" - Steven M.
  • " Aside from the great pleasure of hearing my script read aloud the feedback from the Insider, Tim, and the audience was insightful and made me excited for another pass at the script. I would highly recommend this monthly festival not only for submissions but also for attendees, all aspects of LiveRead/LA are beneficial for growing in writing regardless of if your script is selected!" - Jenna W.


Parking: There's free street parking on the North side of La Brea. Parking is also available on surrounding streets, but read those parking signs. We HIGHLY suggest coming before 7:30pm, so you can grab a homemade cookie and meet some of your peers! Traffic in the area is unpredictable, so give yourself ample time to be safe.

Admission - We ask for a suggested contribution ($10) to help cover costs, you can pay that here, or you can show up at the doors. Seating can be limited, so we prefer you R.S.V.P. in advance. Homemade cookies are included in the contribution of course!

Audience Feedback Rules: ALL COMMENTS WILL BE LIMITED TO 2 MINUTES. So practice your succinctness... or just focus on one bit. You are welcome to expand on your comments directly with the writer when we're done.
