More details:

Yes, strong characters and a solid plot are extremely important when creating a captivating screenplay, but the best way to set yourself apart is with a clearly defined writer’s voice. In addition to helping attendees pinpoint their voice, Tiegen will also share tips and tricks for networking, pitching, research, “industry empathy” (an original Tiegen term), and standing out in a good way!

Remember: the writing is the hardest part. The rest is just confidence and perseverance.
