I've been blogging daily about new projects like the Weetzie Bat Cookbook, events, books I'm reading, and writing tips, so check out my posts, including one about my magical Blue Moon Summer Evening at an Eichler house in Orange with Black Hill Press

The Singing Bones

I am also so, so excited to be going to San Francisco for the shoot of The Singing Bones, Danishka Esterhazy's film based on my Bluebeard short story from The Rose And The Beast. I can't wait to meet everyone, including our beautiful and talented actors, Suzanne Pringle and Stefano DiMatteo.


Writing Classes starting in September!

I’ll be starting my ten week online class September 7th How To Structure Your Novel/Short Story etc. in 12 Easy Steps, and a 10 week in person workshop September 20th in Culver City.  I may add a week day class if there is enough interest. Please let me know if you want to take any of these classes. Private manuscript consultation is also available.

I think that's about all. Please let me know what you are up to and if I can help you in any way. I'm grateful to be a part of your community.
Francesca Lia Block, winner of the 2005 Margaret A. Edwards Lifetime Achievement Award and author of over twenty-five books, has had her novel DANGEROUS ANGELS featured on TIME Magazine's The 100 Best Young Adult Books of All Time and NPR’s 100 Best-Ever Teen Novels.  She has been teaching privately and at various institutions, including UCLA and Antioch University, Los Angeles, since 2007.  One of her students raves, "Francesca's novel-writing workshop was an absolute joy. She gently nudged our little half-baked ideas into big delicious possibilities, and guided us through an exciting first-draft and revision process with a keen sense of audience awareness and soul satisfaction. Her insights are spot-on, her critiques generous, her wisdom as big as the world." ~ Tracy DeBrincat, President/DeBrinc Inc / Freelance Creative Consultant and Author, Troglodyte (Elixir Press), Hollywood Buckaroo, (Black Lawrence Press).  "I couldn't think of a better person to edit my first book. Francesca's insightful suggestions imbued my manuscript with absolute magic." ~ Gala Darling.
