Coverfly Career Lab 2.0
6 Screenwriting Workshops between July - September 2021
About

Coverfly Career Lab is designed to help screenwriters who are looking to take the next steps in their career, either by looking for management or simply building out their portfolio. We’ll be hosting six online workshops between July and September designed to give you strategies and actionable next steps for your career.

We want to ensure every writer walks away with a clearer understanding of where they are, where they're going, and things they need to do to move forward.

Throughout the series you will get insight from industry leaders and opportunities to network with fellow screenwriters.

FAQ
Will I be able to re-watch the Career Lab?
Some of it, yes. All Pro Talks will be live but recorded for later viewing. Unfortunately, out of respect for our writer attendees, recordings of the workshops will not be available.
Will I get anything else for attending?
Yes! Every attendee will receive worksheets with tips and guides to help personalize each session's topics. The worksheets are for your personal use and do not need to be turned in to us once completed.
I'm just starting to write. Is it too early for me to attend?
It's actually a great time to attend. While some of the information may not be as useful to you right now, it will give you a better sense of where you should be putting your energy.
I already have representation and am just looking for a gig. Should I attend?
If you have active representation, and you're already taking meetings, then you may only find useful information in the last two sessions. However, the earlier craft sessions may still provide useful insight as well as the networking opportunities and workshops.
I only want to attend a specific session. Is the price the same for the rest of the series?
Yes. We purposefully kept the entire series cost low to ensure writers received great benefits even if only attending 1 session. As an attendee, if you miss any of the sessions, you will still have access to all worksheets, and recordings of the Pro Talk sessions.
Will I be able to pitch my materials to the industry professionals and reps present?
Please approach interactions with Career Lab professionals as an opportunity to gain knowledge, insights, and strategies. While select writers will be discussing their unique projects and place in the workshops, we will not allow pitching for the sake of selling projects or gaining representation.

FYI., industry professionals see it as bad taste if you simply see them as someone to hear your pitches. They are opening up their time to help writers, and we we want them to feel comfortable to share freely and not on guard from writers looking to pitch to them.
