The Wendy House wouldn't be where it is now if it wasn't for LAB's Project Greenlight.  Yes, I took me 6 years to write The Wendy House, but LAB's Project Greenlight was the sprinkles to take it to that next level.
I have never been around inspiring writers and amazing, truly amazing instructors 'til this day.  I hold each and every on e of them in my heart.  It was the most incredible inspirational class I have ever been in. 
If you want to be a writer, then I truly recommend to take these classes, and also have acting classes.
