New Meetup: Richardson Screenwriter's Second Sales Meeting

From: Cynthia
Sent on: Tuesday, November 23, 2010 12:02 AM
Announcing a new Meetup for The Richardson Screenwriters Meetup Group!

What: Richardson Screenwriter's Second Sales Meeting

When: Thursday, December 16,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Denny's
13689 N Central Expy
Dallas, TX 75243

What is a sales meeting?

It's where we concentrate on how to sell our completed screenplays. Bring your selling tools to the meeting. These can include a query letter, one-sheet, a telephone cold-call script, and/or a short (1 page) synopsis of your completed screenplay.

Meeting Agenda:
We'll start off with recognition for the efforts and successes our members have experienced since the previous sales meeting. Then we will read and critique each other's selling tools. Those who want to practice an oral pitch of five minutes or less will get a chance to do so and to get feedback. Finally, Lee Shapiro (our group's organizer) will share some techniques he uses when selling his work.

If you're not sure where to start, I recommend reading David Trottier's The Screenwriter's Bible pages 268 to 293 and 299 to 315. These page numbers are for the 4th edition. I understand there is a later edition but I don't have it yet.

Please RSVP.
