This interactive workshop will give you the Agent’s/Career Coach’s strategy for attracting, creating and building powerful collaborations as a writer. Gain the tools to strengthen your creative vision through partnering with complementary individuals – fellow writers, producers, studio executives, directors. What pitfalls should you avoid, how do you know if it’s the right fit, how do you structure the relationship and what happens if the collaboration isn’t working? Learn to claim your voice in every interaction, articulate your creative points with impact and how to navigate conflict. Create your own blueprint for an ideal partnership and reap the maximum rewards.
