Play • 30 min

Sarah J. Eagen is a SAG-AFTRA Actor and Pre-WGA Writer who was recently selected by Blackmagic Collective as one of the “Future Women of TV.”  She has successfully gotten meetings with TV writers, connected with Showrunners, and even booked a role on a major TV show all through networking.

Host Jenn Page and Sarah dive in how to grow your network by blind reaching out to people you don’t know. She gives advice on how to build a relationship that is genuine, when and how to ask for the coffee meet up, and why none of it should feel scary.  She also talks about scriptwriting and how to be an original voice, as well as how to approach scripts from both the actor and writer POVs.
