Marketing & Pitching
Successful writers don’t find work solely based on the merits of their work; being able to market yourself as a creative entity can be a huge factor in helping you share your talents with the world. You’ll study the various channels of publishing and distribution that exist in the industry today, such as e-books, audio books, digital readers, and other platforms that deliver content to audiences on a global scale. You’ll also learn about the process of joining unions, finding a good agent, and obtaining sound legal advice.
Throughout the program, you’ll also be working to assemble your own creative writing digital portfolio, comprised of your writing, artwork, and media including spec scripts, screenplays, animation concepts, game prospectuses, storyboards, blog links, and more. As you prepare to enter into the industry, you’ll be equipped with a self-promotional tool that can help assist you in finding work as a writer.
