Write Now Challenge Webcast - Your Writer Biography

During this webcast, writers from around the world including Australia, Scotland, Canada, and more, shared their "writer biographies" and talking points.  It was an excellent way to get to know one another and find out how to present their backgrounds and career aspirations during a general meeting.    In addition to developing the craft, we endeavor to prepare Writers' Room members for the business of film and television. And that means, knowing how to present yourself, as well as your ideas, in a meeting with producers, executives, and filmmakers. Using the "Breakdown Webcast: Breaking down a General Meetings" as a guide, your challenge was to write a short biography on yourself which focuses on the major "talking points" that you would benefit you in a general meeting with a producer, executive, manager or other industry pro.  Include a bit on your personal and professional background, the genres you write, your screenwriting accomplishments (such as awards, accommodations, accolades), your goals for your writing career (features? TV? Both?), and what makes your point of view so unique in an crowded market!
