Useful sites for writers
- The Writers Guild of America, West website. Great for general info, including contact info for members, and online script registration.
- Best known for handing out Emmys, they also host some interesting panel discussions.
- The Museum of TV and Radio - Great library of TV episodes you can watch. They also host the Paley Festival, which features past and present shows.
Disney TV fellowship
- I haven't personally been involved with this program, but a lot of terrific (and successful) writers swear by it.
Warner Bros TV fellowship
- Another program I've had no personal experience with, but is definitely worth checking out.
- A feature and television writing contest affiliated with the WGA.
- The alternative to the Sundance Film Festival, they sponsor a writing contest which includes a category for original pilots.
- A well-established writers networking group, with great speakers and a Hollywood outreach program. A good way to hook up with like-minded writing groups.
Women in Film
- I haven't done much with this group, but they're very well-connected and have a mentoring program worth checking out.
- One of the two daily industry newspaper everyone reads. You can get some content for free on their site.
- The other major industry paper. You really should subscribe to one or the other.
Hollywood Creative Directory
- Expensive but really useful source of information about production companies. Worth investing in if you plan to make a lot of cold queries.
- Great way to "google" anyone in the industry. Not always completely accurate - I've had to correct my own entry a couple of times.
