Places to get your shit seen and reviewed and hopefully make some money:
- InkTip – a hangout for low budget and indie producers
- ISA – another hangout for low budget and indie producers
- The Black List – a bit expensive, but if you’re really good you might get lucky
- Coverfly X – free peer-to-peer writing notes exchange
- Roadmap Writers – online workshops
- Follow Some Good People on Twitter
- Screenwriters Network has a huge Discord server.
The Advanced Shit:
- IMDB Pro – access contact information for agents and reps (DO NOT use this to contact producers and talent directly, you need representation first)
- Writer’s Guild of America West – they’ll call you when you’re ready
Expect that learning to write screenplays is a long process. Don’t try to contact agents and managers five minutes after you finished the first draft of your first short.
Editing and revision are a big part of the process. Connect with other emerging screenwriters and swap scripts to give each other notes. Don’t be afraid to get a second opinion if something doesn’t sound right in a note.
Generally, you want to have at least two or three finished peer-reviewed screenplays before you approach anyone to seek representation. Five is better.
