"30 Minutes with..." Fall Series Continues | Plus, Listen to Recordings of 2 Exec Interviews!

Posted by Erik Grossman

Hello friends and fellow creatives! Erik here from the Stage 32 Happy Writers.

We are very excited to be continuing our fall series of "30 Minutes with...", an online web-series where we bring in executives across the industry for a live interview and Q&A session with writers like you!

As a writer myself, I have an undoubted advantage that most new writers never get: I get to look behind the curtain, I get to hear first hand what executives are really looking for, what they're tired of hearing, and what's currently hot in the ever-changing development world. With our "30 Minutes with..." series, I can finally share that information with you all, and give you the opportunity to ask whatever questions you have!

These live webinars are recorded and available to watch at any time on the Stage 32 Youtube channel. Can't make a live session but still have a question you want to ask? Leave it in the comments below! It's crazy how fast time flies in these interviews so we don't always get to them all, but we try to answer as many as we can!

This series is aimed at giving you unfiltered access to some of the executives working with Stage 32 to find their next project or star writer. We're going to have agents, producers, development executives, creative executives and representatives - and best of all, this series is FREE to participate in! Simply register using the link below and join us live!
