The Writer's Advantage: A Toolkit for Mastering Your Genre (Michael Wiese Prods.) is a book that embraces a new way of writing, and ultimately, the marketing and pitching of your writing also. There's been enough prequels, sequels, reboots and remakes. It is time for new, authentic screenplays to be written for the collective consciousness. Laurie Scheer has a writing method that assists you in successfully preparing, writing, and pitching your screenplay. The secret is learning how to master your genre.
Laurie Scheer is the former VP of programming for WE: Women's Entertainment, and has decades of experience as a d-girl, producer, cable executive and a writing mentor. She has also served as a pitch coach for various industry organizations such as NATPE (National Assoc. of Television Programming Execs), NAB (National Assoc. of Broadcasters), WIFV (Women in Film & Video) - to name just a few. She is an established producer and author who knows both sides of the desk - how to pitch her own projects and what an exec looks for. She's taken that knowledge and written a book that provides you, the screenwriter, with insider knowledge while planning, writing and pitching your project. Be a success - master your genre and find out why Chris Vogler, author of The Writer's Journey says this about Laurie: "Enter her world with a sense of wonderment, and you will be rewarded."
