Just a quick reminder to my NYC-based friends that I will be presenting a seminar called “The Creative Business of Screenwriting” for NYWIFT tonight.
You’re a writer working in New York and you’ve just finished that million-dollar screenplay. It’s time to take off your creative writer’s hat and focus your energy on effective marketing.
This informative seminar will show you how to assess the market for your script, find out who the players are, and discover what you need to do to establish contacts and productive working relationships. You’ll learn how to write a great logline; how to make better industry contacts and pitch to them effectively; how to prepare your bio; and how to protect yourself legally, tax-wise and story-wise. The workshop includes a complimentary workbook.
Workshop leader Marilyn Horowitz is a NYWIFT member, writer, producer and script doctor, with a large private practice. She teaches Writing A Screenplay in Ten Weeks and Rewriting A Screenplay in Ten Weeks, at NYU. Her workbook, How To Write A Screenplay In Ten Weeks is available here.
