Why a Pro Writer Course?
As you know, we make UNSCRIPTED film and television, but after going through the course and reviewing it, we found the clear, common sense advice to be honest, refreshing, and useful to just about anyone thinking of working in entertainment.
It covers deciding how to pitch yourself, handling pitch meetings like a pro, creating a networking plan that works, and so much more.
These big-picture strategies are presented to aspiring writers, but the advice translates to all areas of showbiz.
You can see a 15 minute free preview clip and decide for yourself by going to the Pro Writer Course page and scrolling down.
We especially like that Stephanie tells it like it is.
Hollywood is a hard, hard place to break into. Stephanie compares breaking into showbiz to making an Olympic team — it’s not easy.
By telling you EXACTLY how the buyers think, Stephanie hopes the Pro Writer Course jumps you to the head of the line.
Throughout the videos and ebooks you feel like you’re inside the mind of movie studio and TV network execs (a potentially scary place!)
Stephanie takes the time to explain why execs think the way they do, and more importantly, how you can capitalize on that. As two working professionals, we can tell you her advice is dead on.
Who is Stephanie Palmer?
We have an upcoming podcast with Stephanie to better answer that question and give you tons of free advice (don’t miss it!)
In a nutshell, she was Director of Creative Affairs for MGM where whe supervised the acquisition, development, and production of feature films.
So unlike a lot of Hollywood gurus, Stephanie Palmer spent a lot of years actually working in Hollywood before teaching people about it.
- When reviewing the course, we found we were mentioned in it. That did not color our perception of the course. People mention us all the time. Doesn’t mean we like what they do.
- As a true endorsement for Stephanie Palmer and this master class, we’re putting our name behind it by becoming affiliates for the Pro Writer Course. Fair warning: if you buy through this link, you’ll support this site and our podcast. If that bothers you, go buy it directly from Stephanie.
