The Brooklyn Work / Writing Date

The Brooklyn Work / Writing Date

Come to the Brooklyn Writing / Work Date!


“You can always edit a bad page. You can’t edit a blank page.”

Jodi Picoult


BROOKLYN!  Join us for a Writing / Work Date. What exactly does this mean, you ask? It means you bring your scripts, your program apps, your to do lists– really, anything you have that needs to get done…because it’s a WORK date.  Also, should attendees wish to spend some time table reading pages, that can happen too!

Come on out because isolation can pose real harm to progress. As artists, we tend to prioritize everything and everyone else BEFORE our art. We make procrastination our best friend and easily become professional self-sabotagers. Working and writing doesn’t have to be a solitary task. Join other writers,  scribes and scribblers from the Black TV & Film Collective and create more pages on your web series, narrative films or short screenplays.

Bring your laptop, pen, pencil, paper, or whatever writing tool suits you. Make sure your batteries are charged, literally and figuratively!

We feel you, writing / working on our projects can be a lonely and arduous endeavor. Help ease the difficulty of bringing ideas to life by committing to a person, date, and time and most importantly pen to paper. Making a date to work with other artists will help you stay on task with your projects.

The event is finished.
