Marketing & Selling a Screenplay
About this Event
Selling a screenplay can be even more challenging than writing one, but with knowledge and the right tools, it is possible to take a written script to the big screen. This online workshop provides participants with a deeper understanding of the film industry as well as practical tips for getting your screenplay noticed. Topics include: copyright, loglines, how to find producers, query letters and more. Whether you have a completed screenplay or just an idea, this workshop can equip you with the skills needed to take your story to the next level.
Heather Wright has spent over 20 years as a freelancer/copywriter and many other years as a high school English teacher, college Business Communications instructor, amateur director and actor, and office temp. (Yes, she can still write shorthand.) Looking for some mental escape during a lengthy editing gig, Heather attended a webinar about writing Hallmark-style films. Heather wrote her first screenplay in autumn 2020, and in summer 2022, she optioned her first script, ‘A Cowboy Christmas’. It was filmed in March 2023 in Maple Creek, Saskatchewan and shown on Crackle in the U.S. at holiday time. Heather continues to write and pitch her scripts and is happy to share what she has learned from her own experience and her research.
