Unsolicited No More!: Literary Representation in Film & Television – Masterclass


About the Masterclass

Instructor: Tiegen Kosiak
November 5th, 6pm PST
Duration: 1-2 Hours

How do you get around this well-worn gatekeeper response: “we don’t accept unsolicited material”? Literary representation is one way! In this masterclass, you’ll learn the differences between agents, managers, and lawyers and how each one can help you along your artistic journey. You’ll also receive tips on approaching potential reps and how to choose the right one for you. Most importantly, you’ll become familiar with the concept of “industry empathy” as well as how to sell your skills and material, with or without representation.

Note: Prior to the start of your scheduled class/classes you’ll receive a link to the Zoom Webinar/Masterclass along with any additional instructions.
