About the Book:

Getting It Write is the first comprehensive, practical guide for building a screenwriting career, from industry expectations to branding and representation.

There are plenty of books about the craft of screenwriting, and a handful about pitching your screenplay. However, little can be found on how to go from writing to pitching in the professional space. There is no formula, no three-step plan. Getting It Write: An Insider's Guide to a Screenwriting Career unlocks pragmatic guidance for constructing a screenwriting career. Never pulling any punches, the book aims to decode Hollywood, prepare you for the road ahead, provide answers for common questions and prevalent challenges, and offer tangible avenues for screenwriting success.

In today's environment, where it is near impossible for an emerging, unknown writer to sell a spec script, it's all about building a career. Getting It Write explores pros and cons of representation, contests, listing services, query letters, pitching events and much more, including innumerable recommendations for useful services and resources.
