Join us in the Stage 32 November Write Club! But I know, I know... writing each day can be tough.

I sit up straight, stretch out my fingers, lay them on the keyboard and.... Nothing. A…

Stage 32 Happy Writers - 30 Day Progress Report

Hello friends and fellow creatives! Erik here from the Stage 32 Happy Writers. We at the Happy Writers want to strive to give writers some insight into how our system works and how well it's working.

A Summation of Successful Successes

We've gotten a lot of questions about our successes and there have been plenty of discussions in the screenwriting lounge about what they mean and where the requested writers eventually end up. Maybe you've been checking out our pitch sessions and made your way over to our success stories page.

Hard Truths and Etiquette

My name is Erik. I'm Stage 32 Happy Writers coordinator, a writer and the son of a father born to excel in the corporate world – and as a Senior Executive at one of the most prestigious hospitality companies in the world, he did.
