Join the P&HS Writing Team

Thanks for being interested in joining our team! We are highly collaborative, and love new ideas. Please send your writing packet to by April 10th. You can also send Pat any questions you have about the process.

The Details:

P&HS writers work as a collaborative team to fulfill P&HS’s slate of projects—specifically, an ongoing stable of web videos plus periodic live sketch shows at Chicago venues. Writers must be willing to:

  • Pitch ideas and write scripts
  • Offer feedback to the other writers—and listen to theirs
  • Make revisions based on group feedback
  • Contribute to video production during shoots
  • Help produce our quarterly live shows

What do we want to see:

  • 3 scripts; 5 pages max
  • Original ideas with a focused point of view
  • Screenplay formatting a plus—writing a shootable video script highly encouraged
  • Shoot for a range of length and style (i.e. short blackout video as well as a 5-page script)
  • Please no parodies of Birdman…unless it’s REALLY good

We prefer Google Hangouts on Monday nights, and shooting weekend mornings. Please include your preferred times when you contact us.
