Writing can be lonely but being a writer in Hollywood is very social. Being a new writer especially can be tough. You have great concepts and maybe even a great script; but without an agent or a manager or a track record, how do you make any headway in this industry? The saying is old but the message holds true. It's all about who you know and what you know.
Adam Engelhard is here to cover how to get your career started and the benefits of networking and collaborating with others that will ultimately turn you into a working writer. Whether you live in the heart of the action or on the outer reaches, there are storytellers and creatives everywhere that you can connect with. Are you up for the challenge?
This 90-Min. Webinar Will Cover:
- Where to go to meet other people
- How to network if you don't live in a major film city
- How to approach people at events, in schools, etc.
- Where to look for possible work in the industry
