The Bivouac is a select group of professional members camped for industry success who have written at least one script worthy of attention.
A platform for our mission as alumni advocate, The Bivouac is a conduit for connecting the company's network of contacts and producing partners to our talented writers.
Not a course but a course of action, Bivouac benefits include a monthly roll call, quarterly script reviews beyond the two available as a profesional member and alumnus, creative work space at the LA office and formal access to industry professionals 20 times each year for specific pitches for script assignments. Members who are in the guild may participate within WGA guidelines.
Eligibility has evolved so that invitation is automatic as soon as a staff member recommends your script to the office following a conference.
In addition to being priced affordably, as a member in good standing you are entitled to work-study options if finances are tight. Dues covering a year of benefits are set to keep pace with founder Jeffrey Gordon's single-draft two-month consulting fee.

Get writers to write and teach tools for collaboration in movies, television and the web.
What We Offer

What You Need
10 hours per week for writing and creative exercises.
Schedule an interview to determine your creative focus, whether feature, television pilot, web series, novel, graphic novel or all above the above.
When You Start
As soon as you've carved out 10 hours from your week to focus your Creative Calendar.
If you're concerned about finances, then you may qualify for partial Work Study or become an online member for further savings.
But don't let time pass without writing or climbing the industry learning curve!
