For LA Writers With Nothing But Nothing To Do On A Saturday Morning

If you happen to find yourself with very little to do this coming Saturday (apparently, January 28; time does fly), drop by the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA (formerly, and fondly, the Temporary Contemporary, which you will note really rolls off the tongue) for a one-day writing workshop inspired by the current exhibition Ecstasy: In and About Altered States.

Specifics: Instructor: Maria Hummel, novelist, former MOCA editor, Stegner Fellow at Stanford University. $55 MOCA members; $70 nonmembers INFO 213/621-1745 or e-mail

And, hey, while you’re there, check out the art, too. Our official assessment: it ranges from extremely cool to “uh, okay”. It’s not your usual MOCA experience. Note: do not try to take photos of the shiny egg spaceship thing. Trust us on this.

    I must have missed the “altered states” lecture when I took Novel 1 from Ms. Hummel.

    That’s because “Altered States” is covered in Novel II. You must learn serious point-of-view before attempting advanced writing tricks.
