It's so difficult for writers to know what to do after they've completed their script. Michele will explain the basics about getting an agent, manager or lawyer and what they can and can not do for you. She will explain the best ways to get these professionals interested in you and your work and will offer information about what to expect from your representation and what your responsibilities will be to them, and much, much more.
