David Milch back at WGA Theater today, tomorrow and Thursday

JfcmilchoneillcropHe liked it so much last week he’s doing it again this week.

David Milch, oracle of all kinds of interesting thoughts on writing, the subconscious, the conscious and the unconscionable, will hold another three days of rap sessions, dubbed “The Idea of the Writer: A Writing Discussion with David Milch,” with anyone who cares to listen at the WGA Theater today, tomorrow and Thursday from 2:15 p.m.-4 p.m. Admission is free on a first-come, first-serve basis, with limited parking available at the Bev Hills theater.

Milch held two such sessions at the WGA Theater last week, on Wednesday and Thursday. According to Milch associate Scott Willson (who alerted me to this week’s seshes), there were about 60 people who turned out on Wednesday and about 120 on the next day.

The discourse last week generally focused on the writer’s idea of themselves, how to stay connected to your art in the midst of the current strike angst. Milch also talked about an online writers college which he would endow and use to encourage and teach other writers. In the spirit of the season, Milch made mention of some series ideas that anyone can tackle. “Basically, (it was) the kind of learning opportunity that until this point only those of us fortunate enough to have been around David during the development of previous shows has been privy to,” Willson sez.
