2,000+ WRITING & SCRIPTWRITING JOBS (Staff or Copy or Assignments)
Writing & Selling Screenplays is not difficult… once inside the industry.
Securing TV staff writing gigs is not difficult… once inside the industry.
Pitching and Selling new ideas is not difficult… once inside the industry.
Now, how does one get “inside the industry”?
Whether it be Films (Independent or Studio), TV Scripted, TV Non-Scripted, TV Gaming, TV News, Electronic Gaming, Copy, Press Releases, even Technical Writing the key is to (1) get your first writing job, (2) do the job great while (3) simultaneously writing 2-4 Spec (aka: Speculation, write-for-free) Scripts.
Now, once in the industry, being paid to write and doing it very well you will have tons of contacts and be able to get someone, who will read your script and take your career to the next level (assuming your script is great) by either purchasing it (option agreement) or repping you (Literary Agent) to obtain better paying tv staff writing assignments and, simultaneously, set you up with “pitch meetings” to present your Spec Scripts.
The question then becomes… “How does one, an outsider, find their first writing job”.
The answer is simple… Google-Google-Google. I just did and was pleasantly shocked at what came up so quickly.
I Googled “Movie Writing Jobs” and the below 5 sites (Craigslist to Entertainment Careers) were the first to pop up on Page 1 with over 2,000 Writing assignments.
