Happy New Year Everyone!
I know you’ve all been waiting patiently for us to announce details about the writers group that Joel introduced at the last mixer. So here’s the deal…
We’re hosting a writers group this spring that will be monitored by several agencies and management companies. If you make the group, you will get read and possibly signed if they like the final script you work on during this inaugural session.
We’ve partnered with Stage 32 Happy Writers and we’re excited to present two ways to make the group.
Applicants must, at the time of their application, be working in the writers’ office of a WGA-signatory show (including Script Coordinators, Writers Assistants, Executive Assistants, and Writers PAs), OR working for a writer who has an active project (ie a project for which she or he is getting paid) with a studio or network. (All applicants work status will be verified)

In deference to our agency and management partners, who are looking for the most talented unrepresented writers currently working in the TV assistant ranks, applicants must not have an agent or manager at the time of their application.
If you don’t meet these requirements, there’s another way in.
Stage 32 Eligibility
Stage 32 is looking for two talented, collaborative and passionate TV writers to take these two coveted seats. We will be choosing one writer who lives in or around LA and one writer from anywhere in the world (who will be participating in the sessions virtually). You do not have to be working on a TV show currently to be qualified for one of these two seats.

Winners will be announced at the end of February and the group will start meeting in early March. The group will meet Sunday evenings for 12 weeks from approximately 7:00 PM PST – 11:00 PM PST. At your first group, you will meet all of the participating executives, as well as your fellowship writing peers. Each week you will work with your group to develop your pilot. During the second half of the 12 weeks, you will also be mentored by working TV writers and writer-producers. At the end of the 12 weeks, you will present your finished product to the executives for representation consideration.
