When you're on the outside and looking in on the entertainment industry, whether it be as a novelist, comic book author, video game, film (both indie and studio genres), or TV writer, the mountain can seem impossible to climb. First, there’s the creative process (your voice, style, brand, etc.) and then there’s the business side of things (how do you get your work out there).
It’s a lot to wrap your head around, and, if you’re anything like us, you wonder how someone managed to navigate this path before. And you wonder what you could learn from the people who have succeeded.
Producer/Manager Alexander Robb and Roadmap Writers present the in-depth series, "A Writer's Story" chronicling the professional lives of screenwriters and authors working in the entertainment industry today. We'll dive into the past, present, and future, shining a spotlight on the writer's personal journey and outlook.
This One Hour Discussion Will Cover:
- The development process
- Drafting pages
- Marketing, branding, and self-promotion
- Audience Q&A!
