Finding YOUR Path to a Screenwriting Career with Hayley McKenzie image

Is a screenwriting career right for you and if it is, how on earth do you get one?! In this session, Script Angel founder Hayley McKenzie reveals the realities of a screenwriting career.  She’ll use real-life examples of the different paths screenwriters are using to break- in today to help you discover the career path that will get you from hobbyist to professional screenwriter.

Hayley will answer those tricky ‘breaking-in’ questions:

  • What should be in your spec portfolio?
  • When should you approach agents?
  • How do you get producers to read your script when you don’t have an agent?
  • How do you create a CV as a writer when you don’t have any credits?
  • Will writing radio or theatre get you noticed by the film and tv industry?

You’ll leave this session with a clear idea of the practical steps you can take to get from where you are to where you want to be.
