2021 STORYWISE 6-WEEK TV PILOT WRITING TELESEMINAR AND STORY MODULES – FINDING STORY

My Twelfth Annual Storywise Teleseminar starts on Tuesday, February 16, 2021, and goes through March 23, 2021. This seminar is a live and interactive event that includes story instruction, pitching, and an opportunity to get feedback from top working TV writers.

My THREE FREE TRAINING VIDEOS will be available starting 12/29/20.

 

Classes begin on Tuesday, February 16 at 7:00 pm PST ONLINE and go through March 23, 2021

Want to learn all of the things that I teach in Writers on the Verge at NBC? Check out my Storywise 6-Week Teleseminar that includes an eight-module story instruction training series called “How To Write A TV Pilot That Sells: Finding Story.” In this digital product, I will go into how you find the story when writing the TV pilot. I give full breakdowns for nine shows. We will take a deep dive into several story tools that could lead you to a sale.

I designed the story modules for “Finding Story” and the 6-week program to help you write a compelling TV pilot in 6-weeks. I will teach you how to write at a level that will help lead your script to a sale, get staffed on a show, place in a writing competition or get into one of the various writing programs. This course is everything that I teach in Writers on the Verge and more. To date, eighty-five pilots sold from writers that took part in this experience and my one on one consults.

Last year we had over 150 writers from all over the world. You will not only learn all of the story tools that you need to succeed, but you will also gain the opportunity to be in a private community of writers. This community is a precious resource. In it, you can exchange scripts, find accountability partners, and form writer groups. 

I’ve seen the success of this course first-hand. Many of the writers who have taken this course have gone on to sell pilots, get staffed on TV shows, and get into several prestigious writing programs. Sixty-Two pilots sold from the writers that I’ve worked with, and six of them went to series.

I will pre-record the story instruction. The story instruction will launch in January. The digital course is titled “How To Write A TV Pilot That Sells: Finding Story.”

In February, each call is approximately 2 – 2 ½ hours in length. On each call, we will go over the notes for the four writers participating at Level 3. You will have an opportunity to read their scripts and make your notes each week. You will also get to share your notes with those writers directly. This process is what we do in Writers on the Verge. It is a way to prepare you for being in the Writers’ Room. Then, I will allow five people to sign up each week will get an opportunity to pitch to a guest speaker. We all learn from hearing others’ pitch. This part of the program will help you learn from the pitching style of others and allow you the opportunity to pitch yourself. It’s an invaluable tool. Every level will have a chance to sign up for this.

 You will be able to purchase spots once I launch the digital product in January of 2021.

ASSIGNMENTS

Level #3 is the only level that has assignments due every week.

Level #3 writing assignments will be due the Saturday before each class. Everyone who signs up for the course will receive assignments turned in by the Level #3 writers to follow along and provide notes directly to the Level#3 writer. 

Levels #1, #2, and #4 will do the assignments on your own. Level 1 receives feedback on a 1-2 page pitch document only. Level 2 and Level 4 get feedback during the pilot consult or coaching consults. 

  • I highly recommend that all levels use the Facebook community of writers to exchange scripts for receiving weekly feedback.
