Recession Special: Buddha Killing in L.A.

Live in the Los Angeles area? Have the perfect Buddha-killing story but need to work on how to tell it? Low on cash? You’re in luck. KtB contributor extraordinaire Gordon Haber has reconfigured his religion writing workshop to be more affordable than ever:


WHAT IT IS: A four-week writing workshop that will help you define, explore, and write about religion and spirituality.  The goal is to help you create a particular piece.

WHAT IT IS NOT: An attempt to indoctrinate you into or proselytize for any particular religion (or religion at all).

WHO IT IS FOR: Writers of any genre (film, fiction, TV, etc.) looking to delve into their own belief (or lack thereof) and create a work with a religious or spiritual theme.

THE DETAILS: Wednesday evenings, 10-14 to 11-4, 7 to 9pm, at the Brewery in downtown L.A. Cost: $250.  For more info: call Gordon at 917-513-9009 or write to
