Our events educate, entertain, and build community among writers in Los Angeles. We try to create a safe, comfortable and memorable experience for all of our guests, panelists, and staff. To further those goals, we have the following set of rules.

As an attendee, you may not:

  • Engage in discriminatory behavior or offensive speech or actions concerning the gender, sexuality, race, disability, or religion of others.

  • Ask panelists for personal contact information such as phone or email.

  • Hand panelists your material in written or electronic form.

  • Monopolize panelists’ time or prevent others from interacting with panelists.

  • Verbally or physically harass panelists or staff.

  • Solicit panelists for business ventures or jobs.

  • Engage in any action that may harm, endanger, threaten or bring discomfort to anyone.

  • Harass, attempt to intimidate, become verbally combative or hostile towards, or fail to follow the directions of WGF staff.

  • Tape, record or broadcast the event in any manner without written permission.

By purchasing a ticket and/or attending an event hosted by The Writers Guild Foundation (“WGF”), you agree to follow these rules.  If you fail to follow the rules, you may be asked to leave the event and you will not be invited to future events.

By attending, you acknowledge and agree that your image or voice may be recorded.  You release all rights in these recordings and grant the WGF the right to use, publish, reproduce, and otherwise use such recordings anywhere in the world, for all time, in any medium, without payment.

If you have any questions or concerns about our Code of Conduct, please e-mail us.


Proceeds from all events benefit the Writers Guild Foundation's Library, Archive and Outreach Programs. 

Ticket costs are NOT tax deductible as charitable contributions. The price of your ticket represents the fair value you are receiving. 

NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES. All ticket sales are final.

Purchased seats that remain empty up to five minutes prior to show time may be released to members of our standby lines, when applicable. It is the responsibility of the ticketholder to inform Foundation staff ahead of time if they are running late in order to keep a hold on their seat. Your seat is no longer guaranteed past an event's start time.

Panelists are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances or scheduling changes.

Tickets may be transferred to another party at the discretion of the original ticket purchaser.
