The Writers Guild Foundation, in partnership with the Academy Education and Nicholl Fellowships Programs, presents the writing conference you won't want to miss!

WGFestival 2018 is a weekend of keynote panels, interactive workshops, and special events focused uniquely on the craft and business of writing for film and TV.  Featuring the industry's best and brightest writers, producers, and executives, our goal is to provide an educational, insightful, and inspiring experience for writers at all levels. 

This year, we've expanded the workshops and added an additional special event on Friday evening for pass holders.
