Speed The Pen: The Industry
So you wrote your pilot, you've held a reading; you've sent it around, gotten great feedback - now what?
TV Lit Agent Liz Orr from UGA will join the Speed The Pen circle to share her insight on what she looks for as a reader, how one goes about getting an agent, and tips for building a successful career as a TV writer. This will be followed by a brief moderated Q|A.
After the industry guest leaves, the final hour and a half will be a timed Pitch Around - in the spirit of a TV writers room - where we'll work to strengthen your pilot idea before you take it out to the business.
You may cancel and receive credit up to 7 days before the start date of the class. However, within 7 days of the start date of the class, no credit will be issued. Due to the nature and structure of this class, you will not receive credit or be able to make up any portion of this class for any reason if you cancel or miss a class after the start date.
