The Screenwriter's Guide to Agents and Managers

The lessons to be learned from this helpful guide show aspiring screenwriters, television writers, and novelists how to catch an agent’s eye and develop a successful scriptwriting career. Step-by-step instructions reveal how to get around the “Catch 22” of the trade—but you can’t get an agent until you’ve sold a script. Interviews with prominent agents, managers, and Dinah Perez disclose how the power brokers choose material, what kinds of writers command their attention, and what they expect from the writers they sign on. Tips on how to write a winning spec script, how to word an effective query letter, how to forge a sound relationship with reps, and other invaluable advice fill this insider’s guide. Also included in the book are Dinah Perez’s published articles on writers and the legal issues that are unique to them.
