Our Origin Story
UWA is short for United Writers and Artists and was founded in 2019 specifically to fill gaps in the entertainment representation arena: boutique, personalized management services for talented writers just starting out with no credits or connections, for successful writers in other arenas entering into the Hollywood stream and for those amazing mid-to-upper-level writers working the business gig by gig who just need someone in the town to see and believe in them and their proejcts. UWA was created to open doors and provide opportunities. Sure, sometimes we have to be a little Jack Nicholson in The Shining with an axe on those doors... But we're cool with that.
In general, new clients are by referral only. Currently we are not accepting new clients until at least January 2024.
When time allows, we will read "over-the-transom" submissions from those seeking careers as professional screenwriters. We prefer samples to be features or television movies. TV pilots for samples are acceptable but please know, we are NOT taking on any new clients for TV staffing. If you wish to "break-in" to TV writing, we recommend you get a support staff job on a current TV show or with a studio. Please also understand there are many reasons why we may not accept certain projects for review, such as conflicts with our existing client projects, or genre of your project. We do not accept HORROR projects or anything overtly raunchy. Just not our thing. If we accept your project for a read, please allow 3 to 4 weeks for response.
