He spent three years teaching storytelling to inner city high school students through the non-profit arm of Spoken Interludes.
He founded LA Writers' Lab in 2002 as a place for writers to deepen their craft by learning to marry the rigor of structure to the freedom of the muse.

Al Watt 90-Day Novel / Screenplay / Rewrite Master Class

...
Al Watt is the author of The 90-Day Novel, Amazon's number one book on writing, as well as The 90-Day Rewrite and The 90-Day Screenplay. He has written screenplays for numerous production companies and is the author of the bestselling novel Diamond Dogs (Little, Brown). He has won a number of awards for his writing including France's 2004 Prix Printemps (Best Foreign Novel) and the American Library Assoc.'s Alex Award. TheNew York Times Book Review said, "Watt delivers a moving, multi-faceted story that sharply explores the legacy of violence, distorted forms of love and the high cost of genuine freedom," and the Denver Rocky Mountain New said Diamond Dogs is "the cream of the debut-novel crop . . . a literary feast of the first order . . . its 17-year-old narrative voice rings entirely true."
