Something magical happens in your classes, Linda.

Linda Bergman’s class was a revelation!
Although I’ve participated in writing workshops in the past, … this class was fun, dynamic, and empowering. I learned the structure and technique behind successful screenwriting—and what I learned has strengthened and sharpened all of my writing.

So You Think Your Life’s A Movie was a life-changing experience for me.
A difficult memoir of my tangled involvement as a young photojournalist in 1980’s Latin America came to life … I can’t say enough about the importance of the moment for me when I saw my words… acted out in class. A dark shadow over my life was lifted by the transformative powers of artfulness. The best therapy, better than sex or even a massage, soul-freeing!
