Open WGA Meeting This Week: Reality & Game Show Writers Unite!

Publish date:

Hey, everyone--

As you know, I've been a vocal supporter and cheerleader of the Writers Guild's efforts to organize reality and unscripted (ha!) TV. This isn't a cause that concerns only reality writers... it's a fight for the rights of writers in all mediums. SO...

Tomorrow night, the WGA is holding an open introductory meeting for new members and anyone interested in joining the fight. If you're in LA and would like to come, the WGA is providing dinner... (and free parking!)...

Here's all the info... hope you can make it!

WHEN: Thursday, November 20, 8:00 p.m.
WHERE: Writers Guild, west - 7000 West Third Street, Los Angeles, CA 90048
RSVP (or questions):
