TOOLS TO OVERCOME SEXISM AND RACISM IN PUBLISHING AND HOLLYWOOD
JOIN INA WITH AWARD WINNING PRODUCER SHELBY STONE AND FILMMAKER JEFF PORTER
In this seminar for writers and others in publishing and Hollywood, we will explore the dynamics of gender and racial discrimination that writers face in publishing and in show business. Whether you are a journalist, scriptwriter, copywriter, editor, songwriter, script doctor, or any other type of writer, join us as we discuss discrimination: how to spot it, how to handle it, how to “lean in” and push back against it, and how to work around it. We’ll also be touching on ageism, height (!), and snobbishness in publishing, TV and film. You’ll be getting practical tips on beating these ever present demons. Plenty of time for networking, and a chance to express, if you like, specific instances you’ve experienced. Our panel will suggest some ideas for handing such situations with aplomb.

Find Ina at The Rewrite Desk for IWOSC (Independent Writers of Southern California)
Polishing your writing: The Rewrite Desk. Greg Miller and Ina Hillebrandt
Finishing a draft of a book, script, or other written work is an awesome accomplishment – but we all know at least one more set of revisions will certainly follow because you probably won’t get it totally right on the first or second draft. Assessment of a draft and deciding what to emphasize or cut is a very delicate stage of the writing process. This seminar will cover methods and principles that you can apply to books, scripts, memoir, personal essays, speeches, storytelling, etc.
