What to Expect

It's important for every writer to have a solid script AND to show executives that they are collaborative and professional to work with. These 2-week Rewrite Clinics are designed to give writers an opportunity to develop a solid script and collaborate with an industry professional. 

The executive will read your script and in an online roundtable with only 4 other writers, you will have 25 minutes to receive notes from your executive, get to know them and them get to know you. 

Then you will have a week between sessions to revise your pages and in the second roundtable, you'll have another 25-minute meeting to talk about the submitted revisions.

Rewrite Clinics meet online via virtual classroom utilizing video conferencing software ZOOM.
