Lisa Loop graduated from Coaches Training Institute and was certified as CPCC by the International Coaching Federation.


In addition to coaching individuals, she facilitates writing workshops, is working on a book about overcoming writer’s block, and is co-writing and co-producing a post-urban romantic comedy.


Her work background includes Hollywood story editor, co-founder of a copy writing firm, story analyst/writer/editor, and assorted freelance jobs in film, interior design, and advertising. Her work has appeared in national theatrical marketing campaigns, online ‘zines, and trade publications.  She started out doing Public Affairs for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, where she learned the hard way how to spell the word Satellite.


Class Objectives:


 A workshop where writers bring ideas in development, rough drafts, and polished pieces for supportive critique by peers.


 A class for learning what works well in a workshop setting, so students can start their own future incubators.




Type of Work:


Screenwriting for any filmed medium including feature scripts, shorts, television, or web series. Prose writing including short stories, novels, or memoir. 


If all you have is a treatment or partially fleshed out idea and are not sure what to do with it, bring it to workshop.


The point of workshopping is to get direction and support for whatever you have, wherever you are with it.


All levels welcome.


Participants will bring pages or treatments to read; the time will be evenly divided between writers with work to share.


Critique will be structured, pragmatic, and focused. Ground rules help guide discussion toward helpful, motivating commentary. 


Discussion will touch on best practices for getting and using feedback.
