Any advice of gaining representation for a screenwriter for those outside of LA/NY?

Veteran

Michael Devore Kirkland, WA

Good afternoon!

My name is Mike Devore and I am a Navy Veteran and Screenwriter based out of Seattle, WA.

I am currently finishing up a writing fellowship through the Netflix Animation Foundations Program and was a mentee in the 2021-22 WGF Veterans Writing Project.

I have a half-hour dramedy script that is currently a Quarter Finalist for the PAGE International Awards as well as a finalist for the 2022 Bigfoot Script Challenge. The Script also sits in the top 5% on Coverfly.

I feel that I'm ready for the next stage of my career and was hoping that someone had any thoughts/recommendations for someone trying to break in.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Sincerely,
Mike

May I also suggest using LinkedIn - search for Screenwriters or others in Industry in People then the location or remote you desire, then craft a tailored connection request to do two things increase your network as well as set up informational interviews with current project managers in your area - If you desire you can connect with me on LinkedIn and use my network - https://www.linkedin.com/in/garyrossibaldrigecoach/ V/R Gary - I am also open to chat if you desire - connect with me on LinkedIn to set something up
