Write-A-Thon: A New Year's Hope

6:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Writers Guild Foundation Library, Los Angeles

That’s right, we are welcoming 2017 with the first Write-A-Thon of the year! Expect to be surrounded by snacks, pizza, and your fellow writers. Plus, we’ll also have a raffle with cool prizes.

If you’ve never been to one of our Write-A-Thons, it’s an evening when we keep the Library open after-hours. Whether you’re a night owl, a member of a writing group that meets on evenings, or just feel motivated when surrounded by other writers, we welcome anyone who wants to come work and write.

We are also excited to welcome Jennifer Goyne Blake from the Sundance Institute’s Episodic Story Lab, which is accepting applications until February 1. Learn about the opportunities within the lab and how you can make your application the strongest.

The Write-A-Thon is sold out. But we do have a wait list!
