Television Writing 101

As the economy officially enters a recession, more writers are exploring new kinds of outlets–from videogame scripts to Amazon Kindle ebooks to blogging programs.

Last week, one GalleyCat editor interviewed television producer Chad Gervich about his new television writing handbook, Small Screen, Big Picture: A Writer’s Guide To The TV Business. That long interview is up on mediabistro.com’s main page, giving writers more ideas about writing for television.

Here’s a sample, Gervich talking frankly about his writing degree:

“The other day, my boss told me that my background in playwriting gave me stronger storytelling skills. Telling a story is a craft. You work hard to get better at it. My skills of being a playwright have been helpful, but I don’t think the degree itself was helpful. At the end of the day it’s all about storytelling and writing.”
