Arts Council of Princeton offers a screen/play writer’s workshop with Charles Evered to mark the culmination of a six-month residency at the Robeson Center. The workshop is for aspiring writers and directors interested in furthering their ambitions. Evered will share his experience on how to make a living as a writer and navigate the changes in the entertainment industry. The workshop includes how best to submit work to producers, get an agent, work with name actors, and whether to enroll in a writing program or film school.
Evered’s “Adopt a Sailor,” his first feature film, was screened at the Robeson Center in November with Bebe Neuwirth, who stars in the film, in attendance. He also presented a reading of his play “Class” starring Neuwirth and Roger Rees.
