Had a blast chatting about my favorite thing (writing, obviously) with Aaron Tracy on his podcast To Live And Dialogue in LA. Check out all of his great interviews with writers, including: Billy Ray, Brian Koppelman, and many more.
I’m helping to announce the Black List 2017 along with this group of crazy talented people:

Leslie Odom Jr.

Phil Lord & Chris Miller
Sterling K. Brown
The Duffer Brothers
Every two minutes from 9 AM to 11:32 AM PST, under the hashtag #BlackList2017, the Black List’s Twitter account (@theblcklst) will tweet a video of one of the presenters above announcing the title, author, and logline of one script featured on the thirteenth annual Black List.
The ordered list in its entirety will be available at 12 pm PT on Monday, December 11 at http://www.blcklst.com.
I’ll be speaking on a writing panel with the kick-ass writers of STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, STAR TREK BEYOND, and EMPIRE (just to name a few from the pretty cool lineup). If you’re in Los Angeles, want to hear a bunch of writers gab about writing, and are looking for something to do this Friday, April 8th — check it out.
Watch out, I made another list. Honored to be on here with these talented screenwriters. Check out the full list.
I am horrible about posting here. Since I made the Black List in 2013 I’ve been steadily working for the studios, which has been a crazy fun ride, but my blogging has been spotty at best. So in an act of shameless self-promotion, it looks like I made another list this year: The Young And Hungry List: Top 100 Writers On The Verge. Not sure what I’m on the verge of (hope it’s not a cliff), but it’s always nice to be recognized. Happy to be among such a talented group.
If you’re around Hollywood on Saturday, November 22nd, check out the No Budget Film Festival. I’ll be speaking on a panel with Black List CEO and Founder Franklin Leonard and 2013 Black List writers Meaghan Oppenheimer and Geoff Tock. Come on down and chat with us!
Here are the details:
Every year a list of the best unproduced scripts, voted on by an industry’s worth of tastemakers, is released to the public. Since its inception 10 years ago The Black List is easily the most surefire and reputable way for writers to be discovered. Join writers whose success on the Black List has translated into real life progress in their career as they talk about the process, inspirations and what pushed them from writing in a vacuum to pursuing the next phase of their careers. Black List CEO and Founder Franklin Leonard will be on hand with 2013 Black List writers Meaghan Oppenheimer, Geoff Tock, and Stephany Folsom to discuss the list’s role in their journeys. From first getting representation, to being staffed on TV shows, to being hired by studios, to having their scripts read aloud in Black List Live by the likes of Nathan Fillion, Alison Brie, Clark Gregg and more, to the holy grail of Black List-dom: getting your unproduced script produced, get the low down from the people who know it best.
