Take your screenwriting
career to the next level.
A 5-week immersive experience designed to help new and aspiring screenwriters replace guesswork and procrastination with clarity, focus, and confidence — so you can stop feeling lost, aimless, and stuck, and start making progress.
WWS is for anyone who wants to:
Turn procrastination into progress.
There’s nothing worse than feeling guilty for spending hours on social media instead of working on that script idea. Turn procrastination into tangible progress by learning how to create your own productivity system.
Build a supportive professional network
Network with a community of supportive, like-minded creatives on the same journey.
Be the boss of their creative career
Stop feeling lost and get in the driver’s seat of your creative career. Learn how to navigate Hollywood, manage your finances, and build confidence from the inside out so you can be the boss you’re meant to be.
MODULE 1: Career Building Blocks
Build a strong foundation for the long term. You’ll learn what the industry is looking for, how to embody those characteristics and I will coach you through how to mindfully build a powerful mindset so you can show up as your best self and create the life and career you want.
MODULE 2: Networking
The word “networking” has been known to
strike fear into the heart of even your least
socially awkward writer. But fear no more
weirdo, because networking isn’t about stiffly blurting out your feature idea to a stranger like a robot, it’s about making genuine connections with hustlers just like you. In this module, you’ll get an actionable roadmap to navigate the Hollywood machine, learn how to build and maintain your network, find collaborators, and more.
MODULE 3: Skills & Action
Learn how to build a productivity system around your creative projects that kill procrastination and gets you from idea to execution on autopilot so you can build momentum and create a path all your own.
MODULE 4: Inside the Writers Room & Pitching A TV Show
How do I nail a TV staffing interview?” “What happens in a writer’s room?” “How do I knock my first job out of the park and make sure everyone wants to hire me forever?” You’ll also learn a TV Writer’s other most crucial job — how to pitch a TV show.
MODULE 5 – Beyond the Room
The transition from the rigidly structured world of a 9-5 to the wide-open plains of a working writer can be a rocky one. This module will cover how to make the final transition from civilian to Boss including an introduction to F.I.R.E in The Werking Writer’s 6 Step Guide to Money Management Workbook where I walk you through how to save for those in-between times, pay off debt, and build lasting wealth without overwhelm.
The 5 weeks will be a combination of live Zoom Mentor sessions with working writers + watching the pre-recorded course modules taught by Charla. Students will complete weekly assignments after each module to put what they learned into action.
I’m the last person anyone ever expected to work in TV comedy. I’m a woman, an immigrant, and I deal with my fair share of anxiety. But a decade ago I decided to stop living in fear of what I couldn’t do and start working towards what I wanted. A bunch of Writer’s Rooms and billions of mistakes later, I’ve learned many important lessons, but probably the most important one is that being a working creative in Hollywood requires more than talent- it requires that you BYOB (Be Your Own Boss).
If you’ve been working towards your goal of being a screenwriter and it feels like there is no clear way forward it’s because you have to create your own path. And now you don’t have to do it alone. When you join this program you’ll get the knowledge, guidance, and support you need to mindfully build a system for your career so you can stop stressing and start werking.
Trusted By Writers Like You
This program gave me specific insight into the film/TV industry that I’ve rarely if ever heard anyone talk about in a class before (for example how a writers’ room actually works), as well as mindfulness and management practices for me to reach my full potential.
Applying tools from Werking Writer has given me more control, and therefore less stress working in such a challenging industry. It’s been an incredibly valuable experience
As someone who’s gone into credit card debt taking comedy classes (sorry, credit score in my early 20s) and attended numerous industry workshops and panels over the last decade, I’ve never had a program provide such clear, proven, and actionable advice for those looking to make the leap from balancing day jobs and side hustles to pursuing screenwriting and filmmaking full-time as this one.
Charla’s insights throughout these modules are useful for writers and creators at various stages in their career. I definitely feel like I’m armed with a lot more knowledge about breaking into an industry that hasn’t been covered elsewhere.
The Werking Writer Course helped me with nearly all aspects of my writing. After taking it I’m procrastinating less, networking more, and have a clearer sense of direction on how to advance professionally.
Most of all I’m enjoying writing more than ever. I highly recommend it to anyone serious about screenwriting.
