Bringing Words to Life: Writing for Performers

8:00 PM - 9:30 PM
WGF / WGA Headquarters – Del Reisman Multi-Purpose Room, Los Angeles

As the entertainment industry rapidly evolves and becomes more accessible, creators have found themselves taking on multiple roles, from writing to acting to directing and everything in between.

On this special night, we team up with Cornell in Hollywood for a panel of five writers and actors (and Cornell alums) who will give their insight on how writing and acting intersect, how to honor a writer’s intention and still make a role entirely your own, and what it is like to take on both the jobs of writer and actor at once.

Tickets: $15.00 - $20.00

TV Writers: How to Master the Meeting

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
WGF / WGA Headquarters – Del Reisman Multi-Purpose Room, Los Angeles

Meetings. From generals and show meetings to agent/manager and showrunner meetings, it’s a dance you’ll need to learn to master if you want to build a career as a TV writer.

On this special evening, our panel of writers discuss how to get meetings, what you can expect at every type of meeting, how to navigate through the industry’s spoken (and unspoken) rules, and how to put your best foot forward no matter whom you’re meeting with or where you are meeting.

Before you attend those meetings with everyone you met at San Diego Comic-Con, we will help you get prepared.

Tickets: $15.00 - $20.00
