 The Bechdel Group is an actors / writers collective that produces new work readings of scripts that pass the Bechdel Test. We have two seasons and bi-annual 24 hr writers challenges thanks to Jimmy’s No. 43. I invite writers and actors to submit to us.

An exclusive writers / actors collective that offers workshops at theater festivals. The 9th Floor helps writers develop work. Meet current members at this year’s Fly Center New Works Festival.

As a Grand Jury member for the 2018 New York Festival International TV & Film Awards, I recommend submitting to this festival. They are supportive and offer a variety categories that acknowledge the wide scoop of storytelling from advertising to news and PSAs.

The Webby Awards is one of the first major competitions to offer a video awards category. While internet videos are working their way into the mainstream as more then just ‘viral’ – it’s been awards competition of this level that have helped. I’m proud to be a judge.
