Working with students and helping them refine their writing skills and discover their artistic voices
Workshop Instructor (Current Employee) – Cambridge, MA – January 3, 2017
A typical day of work involves reading materials that have been submitted to me such as screenplays, television pilots, short stories, manuscripts and novels (fiction and non-fiction), and providing written and oral feedback. Days also include: telephone calls with students and clients, discussing their material and ways to advance and improve their projects, calls with industry professionals such as agents, producers, studio, network and cable company executives.
I am always learning from my colleagues new creative insights that improve my skills in providing students and clients with feedback about their work.
I'm managing assistants and interns and working with industry colleagues, including producers, agents, movie and television executives to attach actors and directors to material.
The hardest part of my job is constantly figuring out ways to make projects so they stand out in a highly competitive marketplace.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the discovery of new talent, and helping writers make great strides in elevating their work.
