Governors Judalina Neira and Regina Y. Hicks, along with the Writers Peer Group Executive Committee, invite members to:

Re-branding Yourself as a Writer

Have you ever wanted to write for a different genre (i.e., transition from animation to live-action, or comedy to hour drama) but have been unsure how to make the switch? Join us for a discussion with our group of panelists who have successfully switched writing genres themselves, or helped their clients make the move. Panelists will offer tips and advice on how to land a staffing gig without an existing credit in the genre, using publicity to assist with your re-brand, and how best to work with your team of representatives as you pivot to the writing career of your dreams.
