Join host, Dawn Spinella Tuesday, April 13 at 7pm (PST) and meet former super-model turned actor/writer/producer Hoyt Richards!

Aside from the fact that he won the American Screenwriter's Conference Drama Division in 2020 (2021 deadline April 19th), has won massive awards for his two features, has placed in the top 30 of the Slamdance Screenplay Competition twice, is a Golden Script finalist and an Academy Nicholl Fellowships quarter-finalist, guess what?



That's right, long before becoming an award-winning screenwriter/producer, Hoyt had a lucrative career as one of the world's top male models, having worked with the likes of Cindy Crawford (pictured above), Fabio, and many others! In fact, it turns out Mr. Richards has had quite an interesting life including having survived a cult!

Yes! it turns out that even as his modeling career was literally earning him millions, Mr. Richrds never saw that money as he'd been ensnared in a cult, which bled him dry. Learn how he survived. learn how he thrived and learn how he came into a fabulous rebirth as an award-winning screenwriter/producer

Learn about screenwriting and much, much more, this Tuesday with Hoyt Richards! RSVP NOW!!
