Ever wondered how to respond to a producer’s email or what scenes NEED to be in a genre script? Well… wonder no more.

In Screenwriters Beat Episode #17 – How Industry Pros Talk to Writers, you’ll get some insight into what to expect. And how to react. (Hint: if a producer contacts you, smile. No matter what they say, it’s a good thing. Keep building that connection.)

In Screenwriters Beat Episode #18 – Obligatory Scenes, you’ll hear some scenes that audiences expect to see. The panel also plays a crazy game of Outlining — which includes some obligatory scenes.

But we hope you watch them both!!!

So true, Nicole, so true!
