Success Stories: JUN'12 Signed My First Writer For Hire Contract

Signed My First Writer For Hire Contract

Delighted to sign my first ever writer for hire contract last night for a feature script being produced by a Hollywood prodco. Here's me sat in my little office in Newcastle-under-Lyme, England. This is going to be the start of a wonderful working relationship.

Big thanks to Stage 32 for all the help and support the site and its community has blessed me with over the past five plus years, all for free.

All I've got to say is keep pushing. Keep putting yourself out there and put being an artist before anything else.

John Alen

How did you meet this writer that you signed? Was it through the open pitch sessions?

Chad Stroman

John Alen I'm pretty sure he is the writer that signed a "writer for hire" agreement. Meaning he was hired by a Hollywood Prodco to develop/write a screenplay for them (or rewrite one that needed work, etc.) or adapt a book, etc.

CJ Walley

Correct Chad.
