I've been accepted to the Warner Bros. TV Writers' Workshop. This intensive program is designed to prepare new writers for a career in television. It's one of the best such programs going in Hollywood and I'm thrilled and thankful beyond words.
As someone who has been applying to this program for years, I'm glad I finally wrote a spec script that got someone's attention. The past specs I submitted weren't up to snuff and I knew that better than anyone.
The workshop isn't the only way into the business, but over the years its reputation and influence have grown considerably. I've met several workshop graduates who landed staff writing jobs right out of the gate and they can't speak highly enough of the program. They also advise me to get ready to write my ass off.
With this and many other life changes happening right now, I don't see Clarkblog picking up the steam it once had. But I'll still be chiming in with pointers to interesting things I find and, hopefully, the occasional flash of insight that will completely revolutionize your world. Right.
And when all is said and done, I'm hoping to provide something I haven't seen anywhere else: a peek inside the intensive months-long journey that is the WB Workshop.*
