7th Annual Native Writers Pitch Workshop and Stage Reading
November 14 @ 3:30 pm - 10:00 pm
We will conduct the 7th Annual Native Writers Pitch Workshop during the LA SKINS FEST. The pitch fest allows Native American writers to pitch their scripts, projects and themselves to several network and studio development executives, as well as managers, and agents.
The pitch fest will consist of three components that enhance the participant’s writing career.
The first portion of the workshop is an introduction to pitching and will have a TV showrunner discuss pitching to network executives. This portion will give insight into providing the best presentation when pitching new projects.
The second portion of the workshop is the script pitching session. This portion consists of the participants pitching scripts to creative executives, literary representation and industry consultants. This year’s participants will include executives from HBO, FOX, ABC, STARZ, Bad Robot, WarnerMedia, Turner and more.
The third portion of the workshop has participants meet with a television writer to discuss next steps after pitching. This component will allow participants to inquire about writing for the industry and enhancing their careers.
At 7pm, we open the event to the public for a staged reading of TV pilots and feature scripts from the 2018 Native Writers labs. The stage reading will be followed by a food and drink reception that will allow further discussion of script work and visiting with guests.
The NATIVE AMERICAN WRITERS PITCH FEST is an intensive writing workshop that prepares Native American writers for television and film writing careers. The pitch workshop is designed to give writers information that will grow their careers, access to talent development, and the capacity to pitch to creative executives.
The event takes place in Hollywood and is by invitation only for the first three portions. Tickets are available for the staged reading and reception starting at 7pm. Garage parking is available for $8.
