AWN has a very good interview with ‘Simpsons’ writer Carolyn Omine. It’s definitely worth reading. Here’s one of the many questions she answers:
So, if I am interested in being a writer for animation, what steps would I take?
Carolyn: Get people to read them. Keep improving them. I’m often given scripts to read and I don’t have a lot of times to read scripts by new writers (I can barely keep up with all the reading I have to do for my job), but when I have read someone’s script and I give notes — I am shocked at how often that is met with such resistance.
