What you'll learn in this writing class:

Is it your dream to write the next Game of Thrones or Girls? If you are like most people, the first step on your road to executive producer is getting your foot in the door. Enter TV Writer Tyler Dinucci (American Gods, Drop Dead Diva), who will guide you on that journey to getting that first assistant gig and begin your paid journey to executive producer.

In this three-week Online Writers’ Assistant Class, Tyler takes you through the paces by helping you find that first gig, prep for your interview, hone your proofreading/note-taking skills, and learn how to navigate the room as a Writers’ PA or Script Coordinator. The third session will be a special resume punch up session where Tyler goes over how to craft the kind of resume that gets you hired as an assistant and gives you individual help editing your resume. By the end of the class, you will have everything you need to hit the ground running on a top show.
