Some screenwriting news this Monday afternoon…
1. First of all, the big news in Hollywood is the pending strike by the Writer’s Guild of America. As the strike looms, script agents are having to get into the fray. The Los Angeles Times did a great piece on how all this affects agents. See the full article here.
2. I just received an e-mail from the Screenwriting Expo in Los Angeles, updating their already impressive list of attending screenwriters who will be presenting. Recently added presenters include William Goldman (All the President’s Men), Scott Frank (Minority Report) and more. This would be an awesome conference to attend if you’re into screenwriting, though I admit I do not know how the looming strike will affect the conference going-on’s, if it affects the conference at all.
