For the past few years, I’ve organized a networking event for Bay Area and northern California screenwriters and those in fields connected to screenwriting, always in a charming deli a stone’s throw from the Pacific.
I got to meet a lot of great people, and stay in contact with many of them to this day.
Normally, I’d be in the early planning stages to do it again in early December, but the current world situation has made that pretty much impossible. Even more tragically, the deli had lost so much business over the past few months, they had to shut down for good.
So no networking event for the foreseeable future.
But that doesn’t mean writers can’t still connect with other writers. All it takes is a little organization, strategy, patience, and manners. Actually, it takes a lot of all of those.
Luckily for you, I’ve written about this sort of thing before – several times, in fact – so here are some informative networking-related posts from the archives.
