Here at the Writers’ Program, we pride ourselves on being available when you need assistance. Call our office, Monday through Friday from 8am and 5pm, and you will be greeted by a live person—not the automated kind—to assist you with your writing education. Like we’ve said before, your call is important to us!

That said, we take time off from work just like everyone else during the winter holidays and that time is upon us. UCLA Extension—in conjunction with all of UCLA—will be closed as of Wednesday, December 24th (end of day) and will reopen on Monday, January 5th (bright and early).

However, have no fear—while we will not be here physically to assist you, there are many ways you can still connect with us!

Want to enroll in a winter course? Please do so online!

  1. If you know the course registration number, go directly to and enter that number into the search area. It will take you directly to payment options.
  2. Peruse the winter catalog from our website and click on the registration number, which will then direct you to the UCLA Extension website where you can pay for the course using a credit card.

Speaking of enrollment, this is a perfect time to sign-up for the Writers Studio! Taking place February 5-8, there are 10 intensive courses to choose from (but they’re filling up fast so don’t delay)! Yes, you’ll get to devote four days to your writing, and yes, your instructor will be a professional writer, and yes, there will be a guest speaker, but the Writers Studio is so much more! Maybe the best way to describe it is as a writing love-fest where you will meet and work alongside people who are every bit as passionate about writing as you are. You will come away from the four days feeling inspired, motivated, and wholly energized to realize all your writing dreams. It’s exactly the shot of adrenaline you need to take your writing to the next level. Get more details about the Studio here.

Check in on Facebook for a daily dose of writing encouragement. If that doesn’t satiate your appetite for all things writing, head to our Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube pages too! You can even purchase our screenwriting books, Cut to the Chase or Inside the Room for yourself and for all of your screen and television-writing loved ones! Options, people, lots of options, and all accomplished online.

And then, before you know it, we will be back on January 5, ready to answer your calls, reply to emails, and prepare for another year of comprehensive writing options to suit your needs. Until then, we wish you the happiest of holiday seasons!
