BRAVO ZULU: Help support our vets!

soldiers

It’s time to help move your career forward – and help build a deserving military vet’s career at the same time.

Have you been aching to meet with an agent, a manager, or just a writer who can give you advice on how to give your career a boost?

Now’s your chance. Our BRAVO ZULU fundraiser gives you the opportunity to do just that. Many of the professionals and experts on this list will even read your screenplay and give you notes. We’ll say that again: This is your opportunity to meet with agents, managers, executives and writers who, in many cases, will read your screenplay and give you notes. (See each individual entry on the list for what’s offered.) It’s the perfect way to give your writing career the adrenaline shot it needs.

Each purchase from this list goes to support our Veterans Writing Project. That means a lot more than just giving vets a hand. Because more vets in the industry means more people in a global entertainment industry who’ve seen war and conflict firsthand. It means a more broadly experienced group of storytellers working on the movies and TV shows the whole world watches.

But you’re doing more than just lending a hand to a deserving vet. You’re helping yourself. Besides the karmic benefits you reap from helping the men and women who put their lives on the line, you’re also buying yourself an opportunity to learn from skilled professionals with rare insights into the entertainment industry.

ONCE YOU HAVE MADE YOUR PURCHASE (or if you have a question before making a purchase) CONTACT SANDY AT 323.782.4691 OR sallyn@wga.org TO BEGIN YOUR EXPERIENCE.

(Please note that all meetings offered for sale here will depend on the writer, exec or agent’s availability. Don’t worry, though – if you pay for a meeting, you’ll get one. Plus, you’ll have up to six months from the date of purchase to make and take that meeting. Your meeting will last for at least half an hour. Agents, managers, execs and writers may ask you to sign a waiver. Aside from setting up the meeting, we make no guarantees. Purchase does not guarantee representation. We don’t guarantee that any agent or manager will take you on as a client, or that any writer or showrunner will hire you.  All we promise is the meeting. Once you’re in the room, it’s up to you.)
