- FAST TRACK YOUR WRITING CAREER -
You have the talent, but need tools, strategy and process.
The writing isn’t your issue - it’s other tangibles (pitching, organizing a package of materials, talking points for general meetings) and intangibles (mindset, motivation, networking) that you need to get you the results you want.
We'll help you get there.
Jason Kyle (TV Developer at CBS Studios, Sony Pictures) and Showrunner/Executive Producer Lee Arohnson (TWO AND A HALF MEN, BIG BANG THEORY) have developed a training program to help creators learn and master the most crucial aspect of a career in Hollywood that no one ever writes headlines about:
THE PROCESS consists of learning and developing four major areas of your career:
Your Brand and Voice
IS THIS PROGRAM FOR ME?
This program is tailored to writers at any stage. So whether you already have a polished writing sample or you've always loved TV and know you could be great at writing it - this program is designed for you. No matter what your level is when you sign-up, this training intensive will help you become better at presenting your ideas to potential buyers and collaborators in the most concise and engaging way possible.
- STOP STRESSING. START WRITING. -
At the graduate, university level, one single screenwriting class can cost thousands of dollars. Not to mention the entire program, which can cost between $50,000-100,000 - including tens of thousands of dollars of crippling debt - with a large chunk of that time spent on topics that are completely irrelevant to your career.
Our Program consists of 30+ hours of hands-on training, all-inclusive for $2,500 – less than $84/hour.
So you can stop stressing about recurring investments and mountains of debt, and start focusing on your career growth. No writer can work with a cluttered mind and spirit. Let us help you clear it out, to make way for your potential.
BONUS! Along with being enrolled in the program, you have FREE access to all Pitching Masterclasses for the entire calendar year, as well as 10% off admission to Lee and Jason’s in-person writers retreat in November 2021.

WHAT MAKES OUR COACHING DIFFERENT?
This is the only program of its kind, offering two distinct and crucial perspectives on the TV & Film industry: Jason Kyle (TV Developer at CBS Studios, Sony Pictures) is on the cutting edge of current TV Development and knows what networks need to hear before buying a show. And Lee Aronsohn has staffed writing rooms and broken story for dozens of seasons of TV as Executive Producer and Showrunner on some of the most successful sitcoms ever, like TWO AND A HALF MEN and THE BIG BANG THEORY.
Together their coaching program provides a 360-degree view of how shows really get developed and sold in Hollywood.
CWR’s 4-Month Coaching Intensive is broken up into 4 pods of 4 weeks, each with a specific discipline and focus:
1: YOUR BRAND & VOICE.
(WHAT YOU WANT TO WRITE. YOUR STYLE, YOUR STORY)
Saturdays @10am PST
Dates: 10/2, 10/9, 10/16, 10/23
Just like a business: every writer needs to identify their personal brand, and the stories that they are drawn to telling. Step One in our program is delving into who YOU are and how your personal lived experience informs your writing.
2: YOUR REPRESENTATION.
(HOW TO GET YOURSELF REPP’D. COMPILING YOUR TEAM)
Saturdays @10am PST
Dates: 10/30, 11/13, 11/20, 11/21 (*Sunday @10am PST)
Now that you've honed your brand and your story, it's time to assemble your team. No writer can build a career alone. Your reps will play an integral part in crafting both the foundation and longevity of your career, so you have to learn how to present yourself and your work as a valuable addition to their rosters.
3: YOUR PITCHES.
(LEVERAGING IP, DEVELOPING YOUR IDEAS, &
PERFECTING THE PITCH)
Saturdays @10am PST
Dates: 12/4, 12/11, 12/18, 12/22 (*Wednesday @5pm PST)
So you have your team, and you know your brand. Now your Agent
has secured you a coveted "General Meeting". You can be sure
that the producer or studio exec will be curious to hear an idea or
two. OR maybe you've actually got a full-blown pitch meeting with the studio! In any case: this is the big leagues now, and you need to know how to throw your best fast ball. This single skill is the meat and potatoes of what makes or breaks a writer's career. The good news? We're pitching pros, having been on both sides of that meeting, and we will make sure you have all the tools you need before stepping up to the plate.
4: YOUR SAMPLES.
(HONING YOUR SAMPLES, AND GETTING STAFFED)
Saturdays @10am PST
Dates: 1/5 (*Wednesday @5pm PST), 1/8, 1/15, 1/22
If you want to land your first gig, either as a staff writer or in selling your own pilot, it will all come down to your samples. They have to be well-written, unique, relevant, and most importantly reflect YOUR singular voice. We'll make sure you stand out from the crowd.
FINAL SESSION (WRAP-UP) - Saturday 1/29 @10am PST
PAST GUESTS HAVE INCLUDED:
What's In Each Pod?

YOU GET ALL OF THIS VALUE FOR:
Everything is a Pitch and every pitch should be a story. We started CWR with that philosophy in mind, and a mission to open the door to emerging creators.
We have designed this 4-Month Coaching Intensive in order to give a select number of students who are fully committed to their career growth the best of our collective industry experience. This is not a one-off class. This is a full-fledged training program that is guaranteed to make you a stronger writer and industry competitor. We have seen countless emerging writers not live up to their full potential due to a simple lack of access and relevant industry knowledge. We're here to change that.
We look forward to seeing you in the coaching group, and until then and always: Keep Creating!
