IMDb Picks: August Morris From America The coming-of-age story Morris From America is on our radar this month. You might have read my post about going to the ASJA conference and thought, “It sounds amazing. Spending a weekend learning new skills, gathering information about freelancing, connecting with writers and meeting editors: Priceless. Even though I always get a significant ROI on conference attendance, I still look for ways to keep costs down. Volunteer: Some conferences offer discounts in exchange for helping out at the registration table or working behind-the-scenes to edit conference programs.
Apply for scholarships: You might be surprised at the number of conferences that invite attendees to apply for scholarships that cover some (or all) of the conference fees; some even cover travel and lodging! Share a room: Instead of sleeping solo, request a room with two beds and seek out a roommate.


Purchase a la carte sessions: Ask if it’s possible to pay for a few sessions or to attend one day of a weekend conference. He falls in love with a fellow employee, he steals a couple of cards, everything is going great. In addition to conference fees, flights, a hotel room and meals, it adds up (I spent $1,200+ to attend the ASJA conference).
I signed up for the early bird rate at ASJA (which saved me $80) and volunteered (which reduced my registration fee an additional $25). If cost is a major factor, Google “scholarships” “writers conferences” and look for events that offer scholarships to attendees; apply for a scholarship at a conference that fits with your interests.
Attending fewer sessions instead of springing for the entire event can help keep registration fees in check. Ask about opportunities to reduce the conference fee in exchange for helping out at the conference.


At a conference in Chicago, I shared a super small hotel room with two other writers; on one trip to New York, I slept in a different room each night of the conference (all of the writers who needed roommates had different nights available so I schlepped my suitcase between floors at the conference hotel — and met some wonderful writers)!
It's not the actors fault, there were some top performances here that I enjoyed watching which kept me hanging on till the end credits. Notably Damon and Marlon Wayans, John Diehl, Joe Santos and Stacey Dash who all gave this movie a nice polished feel.
It lacks a lot of charisma and charm that a movie like this should have by simply having to much violence to be that funny.
