Hollywood isn’t impenetrable — not by a long shot. Increasingly there are services and pathways that can get anyone living anywhere read, represented, and sold. Remember–it’s their job to look for new writers, but it’s your job to know how to be in the way of opportunity. This workshop reviews all the ways writers can smartly launch their scripts into the marketplace, whether the goal is Hollywood or Indieland.

Whether you write fiction, creative nonfiction, or screenplays, one of the most important aspects in engaging your readers is your story’s voice. But what even is “voice”? Why does Stephen King sound completely different than Jane Austin? And how exactly does a writer connect to the right voice for their story? In this craft workshop we’ll break down this crucial craft element into its components, and then give you a step-by-step guide for engaging your own voice!
