How Do I Know When My Script Is Ready to Go?

This is one of those questions we do get asked a lot, but maybe not enough. So many of us make the mistake of sending out our script to industry before it's fully cooked, with the result generally being a big ol' PASS. Somewhere down the line we get some constructive criticism on the script, and we immediately feel like an idiot for sending it out too early and blowing an opportunity. Yep, we've all been there. We've recorded a short video that explains how to know when it's time to pull the trigger and send it out, and when it's time to just grit your teeth and soldier on through yet another damn rewrite.

NYC Writers Boot Camp Mini Camp April 7th!

JOIN US for a Special Mini-Camp
Wednesday April 7, 2010, 7:30-9:30 pm
Writers Boot Camp founder Jeffrey Gordon on:
The Secrets of Successful Screenwriting
at the NYC Seminar Center, 71 W. 23rd St.

Have you been writing … but not selling?
Have you been putting in the hours, but not getting the results? Are your great ideas somehow becoming ‘just okay’ scripts? There are Tools and Secrets of Successful Screenwriting that can make the time you’re spending more productive. Join Writers Boot Camp founder Jeffrey Gordon in a free, no obligation session this WEDNESDAY NIGHT that discusses many of these Tools, and learn how you could be writing at a professional level.

Now in our 21st year, Writers Boot Camp alumni have received, won or been nominated for Academy Awards, Emmys, Golden Globes and even the Tony award! Our alumni screenplays have brought in close to three-quarters of a billion dollars in box office, and alumni have created or been staffed on nearly 100 different TV shows. No matter what you’ve accomplished so far, we have the Tools that can help you take your writing to the next level.

What's a Mini-Camp?
Not intended for those already working with us in Professional Membership, a Mini-Camp is an informative, educational, free event revolving around the most challenging aspect of writing: full and entertaining conceptual development. The insight writers gain just from a Mini-Camp will have a tangible impact on their craft. 

In these candid, comprehensive discussions, Writers Boot Camp founder Jeffrey Gordon sheds light on some commonly held fallacies about writing – and rewriting - for TV and film, and provides an introduction to potent tools designed to facilitate conceptual brainstorming. In just one session, you will learn some of the tools that have empowered an ever-growing list of Writers Boot Camp alumni to transition to careers as professional writers.


NYC Seminar Center, 71 W. 23rd St.

We look forward to seeing you there – and feel free to forward this to a friend!
