As much as I love to write about myself, I hate writing a bio about myself. So I’ll make it brief. My name is Sahag Gureghian, and I reside in Los Angeles, Ca. I took my passion for writing to California State University, Northridge, where I received a double BA in Creative Writing and Screenwriting. Recently, I obtained an MFA in Creative Writing – Fiction from National University.
My articles have appeared on Media Bistro and ehow, and Femme Fatale and Cinemafantastique magazines. My short stories have been published in the Ink-Filled Page, Cynic Magazine, Danse Macabre, The Shine Journal, and the GNU. I served as a Writing Consultant at Los Angeles Valley College and teach English, Literature, Communication and Library Research for the online program at Ashford University.
In addition to my teaching and fiction writing, I wrote and produced a string of independent short films, and the feature For Pete’s Wake! I’m also co-writer and co-producer on ‘Script for Sale,’ a documentary for the Motion Picture and Television Fund about a retired 91 year old Hollywood scenic designer, trying to sell his first screenplay. My latest short film, Le Chapeau, premiered in Hollywood in April 2011.
I started this blog ‘by accident,’ during the thesis process, because I felt my creativity was being restricted and I needed an outlet. I wanted to write, but wasn’t able to. So through this blog, I will document my writer’s journey, as I try my best to get creative and keep writing! I hope to offer writing advice along the way.
