Interesting note in the comments section - it looks like the CS Podcasts might be taken down from iTunes. If you're a fan, you should try to download them while they're still available.

Just got this e-mail...

"Creative Screenwriting Is unfortunately forced by its financial circumstances to sell its office furniture, computers, and equipment. Our loss could be your gain, becuase everything is on sale very cheap (and some items are free). The sale will be held Saturday, April 28, at 6404 Hollywood Boulevard, Suite 415, from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m."

It's probably because they close/shut down their Facebook since I posted that. They are now gone as a company/magazine.

About fifteen years ago I started reading Creative Screenwriting. I already had an interest in writing (but mostly novels and stage plays) and had no knowledge about screenwriting.

I used to buy every issue of CS at the local bookstore in Wichita Falls, Texas, where I was living at the time. I looked forward to every issue. I kept reading it for several years after I moved to Tennessee.

Then, several years ago, things changed in the magazine. Before, it had contained really interesting and informative articles. But after the change, the magazine began to have entirely too many "interview" articles that were mostly just transcriptions of a dialogue between CS and the person being interviewed.

Maybe my perception of that change is wrong. But my impression was that the magazine had moved away from articles of interest. Anyway, I found that I was buying the magazine from time to time but never getting around to reading it, whereas in the past I had savored almost every word.

What happened to their DVDs? They sold the duplicating machine.

Here's what's crazy about this to me - after you have been in business for some time you build assets - those assets are things that can keep the company going in tough times (provided you also tighten the belt). I don't know what their deal was on the DVDs and the articles in the mag, but that material can be the life preserver.

Seems they drowned anyway.
