Ask a Mentor: The Adult in the Room

What do older writers need to know about trying to get back into the business?

It’s a familiar tale. A talented, young writer has some early success, sells a few scripts, but takes a detour when they pursue another, perhaps more stable, career.

Send your questions about the craft, job hunting, your career, or Guild service to Connect (under 100 words, please) with the subject “Mentor,” and we’ll send them to an established screen or TV writer to answer. Questions might be edited for space or clarity and will be published anonymously. Read more >>
