or How to Earn an Actual Living as a Writer

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


How to get into TV 6 scriptwriting jobs you've probably overlooked Writing for radio, games, theatre, TV, film and other media Hidden opportunities that are out there right now How to successfully pitch... yourself! Making your own content, today - don't wait from a green light, make it happen How and where to network What to charge (yes, the money question tackled head on) How to get an agent - or not
To make it as a scriptwriter, a working writer, a writer who gets paid, you need to have the right attitude and approach. This guide is going to break down practical and proactive techniques to help you get started, and show you how to maintain a screenwriting career once you’re up and running. It’s a guide that’s less about the craft of screenplay writing and more about being a working script writer. There are lots of books about rare occurrences of someone ”selling it big”. This book is about being part of the hard-working majority, not a one-off fluke. If you picked up a book about investing your money, you’d be rightly disappointed if the advice inside was “win the lottery”. There’ll be no “sell a script for a million dollars on your first go” nonsense here. This book is about long-term success through graft. How do you survive as a writer?

FOREWORD BY TONY JORDAN - "Tim and Danny have put together some great tips for surviving the (writing) process.

"What a great book, I wish there'd been something like this around five years ago." Michelle Lipton (Hollyoaks, Rocket Island)

"This is awesome. I'm so glad I have it!" Sophie Petzal (Wolfblood, Danger Mouse)
