Writing to be Heard: Freelance Opportunities in Script and Speech Writing
Wednesday, April 15, 2015 (All day)

We all know when we’ve heard a great radio story, television show or speech. But great television, radio and speeches don’t just happen. Good writing makes it all happen.

Writing scripts that will be heard by an audience is a different kind of writing than writing for print.  Script writing can be a great new avenue for your writing or wonderful addition to the work you already do as a freelance writer.

Writing speeches for your clients can complement the other writing services you already offer. You can find new audiences for your work through television or documentary film. Maybe you have a story that could be perfectly told on air.

If you would like to write to be heard, please join us to discuss script writing in a few of its different forms at PWAC Toronto’s Putting Words in Someone’s Mouth: Getting Work Writing Scripts seminar on Monday, April 20, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.

The panel includes three writers with an impressive range of freelance writing experience. Doug Dolan is an award-winning communications strategist and a writer who writes executive speeches for clients. Paul Webster is a freelance writer and documentary film director who has reported from 23 countries and won numerous awards for his work. Brianna Goldberg, a freelance writer and radio producer currently working at the University of Toronto writing features and podcasting, while still freelancing and blogging.

These great speakers will share their collective insights with you, including what to consider if you are thinking of writing scripts, what opportunities exist for freelance writers in each genre and general tips for success.

Kate Wilson is a Toronto-based freelance writer and blogger writing about parenting, health and wellness, special needs and travel. She also writes web copy and blog posts for businesses. You can connect with her online at www.katewilsonkalunga.com or on Twitter. She also blogs about her experience as a parent at www.andimamom.com.
