Mylo Carbia to Speak at Screenwriters World Conference

Share Article

Hollywood’s one time “it girl scribe” remerges better than ever with several new projects in development.

Ten years ago, Mylo Carbia made entertainment headlines for landing a “three picture deal” just 28 days after completing her first script – all without a manager or an agent. But years later, Carbia returns to the center stage to offer aspiring writers good advice – namely, “Get a manager, get a lawyer and an agent!”

Carbia will be speaking Saturday morning September 28, 2013, during the Pitch Panel at the Screenwriters World Conference, hosted at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles, California. Although the session is primarily focused on pitching screenplays to producers, Carbia knows her early experience of landing deals without formal representation will be a topic of conversation.

“I have learned so much over the years and wouldn’t dream of walking into a meeting today without my team,” said Carbia. “After the production company that offered me my first break unexpectedly folded due to problems with another film, I quietly continued working on other film and television projects under my company Zohar Films. However, I am very excited to announce my official return to Hollywood at the SWC event, with several of my original scripts available for option and in development.”

In addition to working on her own projects, Carbia has been signed by Ironbound Studios to pen the screenplay for “Maids of Havana” – a historical drama based on the international best-selling book by Pedro Pérez Sarduy.
