About This Event

On this special event, co-showrunners Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This Is Us, Love, Simon) share how they craft each season's episodes, from plotting the layered character arcs to navigating through multiple timelines, how they run the writers room, and all the lessons they've learned along the way. Moderated by Yvonne Villarreal of the Los Angeles Times

Doors open at 7pm. Event starts at 7:30pm.

The Writers Guild Foundation

Event to Support The Writers Guild Foundation

Founded in 1966, the Writers Guild Foundation is the premier resource for emerging writers and movie and TV lovers in Hollywood. Boasting a busy calendar of high-value events and a vast, seemingly bottomless toolbox for writers, the Foundation is unmatched in its mission to promote and preserve the craft, history, and voices of screen storytelling.  A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we’re proud of all we do for the community, including our Veterans Writing Project, our Volunteer and Mentorship Programs, our Archive, and the Shavelson-Webb Library – the world’s only library devoted entirely to writing for the screen.
