Hello everyone, newbie here looking to learn & connect

Hi there, I’m glad I found Stage 32 and I hope to learn and connect with people here. I'm a web designer by trade who runs a film blog https://flixchatter.net. I’m an aspiring screenwriter, I've just completed my first feature screenplay and just about to work on a script for a TV-miniseries. I’m looking for resources/classes/books, etc to learn more about writing a script for a TV pilot, so if any of you can help point me to that, I’d really appreciate it. Cheers! – Ruth

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! I will certainly participate in Lounge discussions and hopefully do a live pitch one day. Very nerve wracking though, so I gotta make sure I'm prepared :)

Welcome to the Family, Ruth!

Thanks so much for the great info, Kay. I will definitely peruse those sites. I already have a concept in mind (an espionage-tinged thriller w/ a love story at the heart of it), just a matter of expanding it into a script. I think given the ensemble cast and complex story, I thought a miniseries would be the best format for it.
