Location as Character: The Craft of Writing Place

  • The Writers Guild Foundation 7000 West 3rd Street Los Angeles, CA, 90048 United States (map)

Whether big city or small-town USA, a show’s location can have a powerful impact. We are teaming up with Columbia College Chicago on this special evening to sit down with a panel of TV writers for a discussion about how writing location, whether real or fictional, sets the scene and can shape the motivations of the characters.


  • Ayanna Floyd - Writer, Executive Producer, The Chi

  • Connor Kilpatrick - Writer, Young Sheldon

  • Matt Lutsky - Writer and Executive Producer, On Becoming a God in Central Florida

  • Anthony Sparks - Writer, Executive Producer, Queen Sugar

Stay tuned for more panelist announcements!

Moderated by Dr. Rosanne Welch.

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