There are many different ways to find a writer. Here are a few suggestions:
- If you know people who know writers, ask for a referral.
- You can post an ad on Craig’s List, something along the lines of: looking for a writer for a short film in the _____ genre. [no pay or some pay]. Please send writing sample for this genre ONLY to: (an email address you create just for this so you don't get spam to your real email address)
- Research writer’s groups, websites, and associations and post the ad above
- Post ad on twitter and Facebook
- If you already know of a writer who wrote a short that you enjoyed, reach out to him/her
