Is this a scam?

From: Ryan
Sent on: Thursday, August 20, 2009 5:44 PM
I got an email via the writers' group which sounds like a scam to me. I thought I'd pass it along to everybody and see what the consensus is via a poll. I deleted the contact information but this is what was sent to me. If you get a message like this I suggest you be careful.

Ryan;

My name is Bill Boyle and I am a professional screenwriter. I
also teach screenwriting at UCLA. I am coming to Sacramento to
conduct a Lecture and a series of workshops from Sept. 21 to
24. I would like the opportunity to send you more detailed
material on the workshops if I could and then forward the
information to your members.

One thing I will mention at this point is that due to a special
arrangement with Write Brother's Movie Magic, I am able to
offer the software to those who register for the workshop(s) at
a slashed rate of $99 (the normal cost is $250.00). This is in
no way compulsary in taking the workshops. It is just a special
deal that Movie Magic has offered me.

If you could send me an email address that allows me to send
attachments then I will send you the material.

Please get back to me as soon as possible as I want to get this
information out by the middle of next week.

Sincerely
Bill Boyle
