The Stage 32 Happy Writers offers one on one virtual pitch sessions, coverage, consultations, classes and labs with managers, agents, producers, directors, directors of development and other industry executives. (For more about who we are, click here.)
 
For our pitch sessions, all writers will pitch directly to the executive listed.  You will never pitch to anyone other than the executive you signed up for.  Additionally, should an executive request your script, The Stage 32 Happy Writers works on your behalf to follow up with the executive who requested the material.  We are invested in helping all writers further their careers by landing representation, optioning or selling their work, or securing meetings with industry decision makers.
 
Below are dates, times and locations for upcoming sessions.  All times are Pacific Daylight Time (PDT - Los Angeles, CA) unless otherwise noted.
