About the CWWH2018.com conference:#CWWH2018
CWWH brings together writers, producers, managers and agents. It is one of the most accessible and affordable conferences of its kind. In attendance are producers in search of their next project, film agents ready to take on new clients and pro-screenwriters prepared to teach novelists the art of screenwriting. At this conference, you will not be competing with hundreds of writers. We wish for everyone to feel like their voices are heard and provide an atmosphere of support and access. I am very pleased to announce that this year we are introducing Connect Groups! This is a small group setting where attendees will have an hour with our featured speakers, the topics will vary and be of valuable information. Perfect for authors who want to know how to sell your book to Hollywood!

(As with all remotes, you’ll notice background noise during the party I was invited to be at as an author and radio host of Lit Up! with Angela Breidenbach. However, this show was too valuable not to share. I think you’ll be able to listen in and enjoy it without much difficulty at all. Just wanted to make sure you knew that the two remote shows have a little different sound due to the live background.)
