    Hello, I was reading in a soap in depth book that you offer an E Class on soap opera style writing using the characters Luke and Noah from As The World Turns. I have always been a huge fan of writing and knew my dream job was writing, just not sure what. Then after I came out, and watched the growing love of Luke and Noah on As The World Turns, I immediatly fell in love with soap operas. My dream job is to write my own, or for a soap opera like ATWT which I am sad to say is not on. But OLTL, GH, Y&R are all other great ones. So was curious where I can find a link for this E-Class

      Thanks for asking, John. The class is actually over. I do plan on creating a product with some writing tips; but not in the near future. My advice for pursuing your dream? Keep watching the shows. If you’re in or near Los Angeles or New York, call the Writers Guild of America, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and/or the Museum of Television (there seem to be several of those around the world) to see if they’ll be sponsoring seminars where you can hear/meet soap writers. Also, back issues of Soaps in Depth and Soap Opera Digest can be very helpful. All the best to you…
