Issac John

A consumer marketing professional with over 12 years of experience, Issac gave up his job as Marketing Head of PUMA to study Screenwriting in 2015.

After a year of relentless rejections from producers, directors, actors, publishers and literary agents, his first book  'Buffering Love' was greenlit by Penguin Random House earlier this year.

During 2016, he finished three screenplays and two screenplays only to be rejected by one and all ,until a chance meeting with an editor from Penguin Random House India turned the tide.

He will share his experience of  his sabbatical year where on the side, he worked as a columnist, bartender, teacher, Uber driver and consultant while trying to pursue a dream that at most times seemed only too far.
