ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Every single story you've ever thought of has potential. And while it's important to have confidence in that fact, most writers and producers don't have a really solid strategy for getting all that potential onto the page, leading to frustration, abandoned projects and submissions that somehow just don't turn into sales. There has to be a better way! Now there is.
This webinar gives practical tools that allow writers to mine all of the gold out that's lurking just beneath the surface of their story. Developing the entertainment potential of your story becomes fun and exciting, and that is the kind of energy you must have if you want anybody else to get excited about your story. Writers can save themselves from writing needless drafts, help gain confidence in their creativity and talent, and ultimately prove it on the page to anybody who reads their scripts. This class is open to TV writers and movie writers of all levels at any and all stages of development of their ideas.
