About The Werking Writer
Screenwriter, Director, Producer
Hi, I’m Charla. I write for TV.
I created this blog to be a resource for screenwriters, creatives, freelancers, and creative entrepreneurs. Topics on the blog include mindfulness, productivity, personal finance, and craft.
I’m also the lead mentor at The Werking Writer School, a course that prepares new and aspiring screenwriters for professional careers as TV Writers. Over five weeks, students learn how to mindfully build self-confidence from the inside out, navigate the Writer’s Room and the Hollywood machine, build a professional network, and create their own productivity system. In the end, students leave with a plan of action to take their screenwriting career to the next level.
Screenwriters, make the leap from 9-5 to Hollywood
