The original screenwriter’s uniform blog post is lost in the interwebs somewhere (how does this happen?) but it keeps coming up in conversation. (Also, according to fashion experts, white sneakers are back! Whoah. Did not see that coming.)

I yanked some photos off the internetz that more or less are different versions of “the uniform” (for women).

The Screenwriter's Uniform

There are a couple shots in there in which women are not wearing jeans. That’s for the people who claim they do not own jeans and cannot wear them. (I don’t know how that happens in this century but I am assured it does.) Also, these are pretty spruced because they’re fashion shots, but that’s essentially it, the uniform: Jeans, casual shirt or T-shirt, flats, loose casual jacket.

Also, so the guys do not feel left out, here is a “the writers” shot from The Larry Sanders Show.

The Writers, The Larry Sanders Show

That’s really accurate. The Writer’s Room is not a suit and tie world.

Screenwriter and author Max Adams

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Max Adams is an author and award winning screenwriter. She has written for Columbia Pictures, Sony Pictures, Tri-Star Pictures, Hollywood Pictures, Touchstone Pictures, Walt Disney Studios, Universal Pictures – and a couple others to remain unnamed because no one around here wants to get black listed. Max is a former volunteer AFI Alumni reader and WGAw online mentor, has appeared as a speaker at AMPAS, USC, and Film Arts Foundation, is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at University of Utah, is the author of The Screenwriter’s Survival Guide AND The New Screenwriter’s Survival Guide, is the founder of two international online screenwriting workshops, and has the dubious distinction of having been dubbed “Red Hot Adams” by Daily Variety for selling three pitches over a holiday weekend – which made her agents cry. [In a good way.] She answers now to both “Max” and “Red Hot” in crowds and dog parks.
