I’m proud to announce the next panel I’m moderating with the Writers Guild Foundation for our Stephens College MFA in TV and Screenwriting — Act Two: Transitioning to TV Writing from Other Careers
The WGF may have hit a pause on our live events, but thanks to technology, we’re aiming to provide more access to advice and knowledge from film and TV writers while we’re all social distancing. Over the last few months, we’ve been hosting free Zoom panels about craft and all things relevant to writers.
For this session, we team up with Stephens College MFA in TV and Screenwriting for a discussion on transitioning to TV writing from other careers. Learn how our panel of TV writers and producers made the jump to television, how their previous experiences inform their writing, and how that lens impacts their approach in the writers room.
- Zoanne Clack, M.D., MPH – Executive Producer, Grey’s Anatomy. Former career: Emergency room physician

- Moderated by Dr. Rosanne Welch, Director of Stephens College MFA in TV and Screenwriting.
