About the Event

For this month’s Writers’ Group, host Christina Pickworth will be in conversation with Sarah Arnott, Manager with Zero Gravity Entertainment.

They will be covering the key things you need to know about Film & TV Managers, sharing an insight to how Managers work with writers and what they do. Sarah and Christina will also be talking about how and when to choose (and then get) a Manager, and the difference between a US Manager and a US agent.
