Jon-Alexander Genson

Literary & Development Assistant @ Sheree Guitar Entertainment
Sunday 5/9 @ 2:00pm - 5:00pm

Particularly Interested In:

BIPOC and/or female half-hour writers. Native American one-hour writers. Diverse and underrepresented voices have been a staple and pillar of Sheree Guitar Entertainment since the company was founded and created by Sheree Guitar as she was a writer in the broadcast comedy space throughout the 80s and 90s — so you can imagine — more often than not, she was the lone female voice in these male-dominated writers rooms.

Pitch Tips
