Writers' Room Life

Curious about what happens in the writer’s rooms of your favorite shows? This circle will break down what you can expect when you’re a writer or support staff in your first room!

We’ll also talk about samples vs specs, getting interviews, nailing the interview, networking, and more.

My circle’s goal is to get you ready with what you need to succeed as a writer’s assistant, writer’s PA, or staff writer.
