Breaking In: Inside the Writers Room with Writing Assistants

Are you looking for advice for breaking into a writers' room and making a good impression? Our panel featuring current writers' assistants and script coordinators may be just the place! Learn the inner workings and daily responsibilities of a writers' room staff, the skills you need to approach the job, and how people--especially those from underrepresented communities--can get staffed. 

Panelists include:

  • Lorraine DeGraffenreidt - Writers Assistant

  • Adam Key - Writers PA

  • Kristina Thomas - Script Coordinator 

Space is VERY limited so purchase your tickets now!

Doors open at 7pm. Event starts at 7:30pm.

All events advertised on our “Events” page are open to anyone who wants to buy a ticket – not just WGA members!

In the case the event is sold out, we will have a first come, first serve stand-by line at the event. The stand-by line does not guarantee entry into the event. We will only accept credit card transactions for any additionally-released tickets.

Proceeds benefit the Foundation’s library, archive and other outreach programs.
