Take this opportunity to learn about writing a streaming video series, one of the fastest growing and highest paying creative markets in the world. From The Hot Zone to Veronica Mars to Stranger Things, from Catch 22 to The Dangerous Book for Boys to Carnival Row, from YouTube to Hulu to Amazon Prime to Netflix and beyond… the streaming video market produces more varied works than either Hollywood or network TV. Learn about these streaming video emerging markets, what content they are looking for, and where to submit your finished scripts.

This free program is sponsored by the Connecticut Screenwriters group at the West Hartford Public Library and presented by Professor Scott Anderson former director of the Harvard Square Scriptwriters. Scott Anderson has taught screenwriting at universities since the late 1980s beginning at U Mass, Lowell, and moving on to Emerson College, and has lectured at U Mass, Boston, Boston College, and the Connecticut Screenwriters, among others. He is currently the creative director for Johnston Media LLC, and a judge in the NYCMIDNIGHT writing challenges.
