I'd always wanted to write for TV/movies as well publish some books, but I had no idea how to break into the biz. Well, turns out getting published is one way! I'm currently pitching a show to production companies that I co-wrote with a (successful) TV writer that's based on one of my articles. I've been asked to consult in the writer's room for a tv show on Hulu because the creators read my viral article. And recently this Vanity Fair article said one of my articles inspired the recent Dog park sketch on  SNL.  I also got my current lit agent because of a viral article I wrote. So, how did I do it? Well, I spent hundreds of hours trying to figure out how the hell you write pitches and then get editors to buy them. I reeeeally wish someone had offered a workshop like this to save me all that time and frustration... and rejection. So, in this workshop, I'll offer up some of the best tricks and tips I've learned along the way.
