Inside the Writers Room with QUEEN SUGAR

Inside the Writers Room with QUEEN SUGAR

About This Event

OWN’s critically acclaimed drama series Queen Sugar, from Academy award-nominated filmmaker Ava DuVernay and executive producer Oprah Winfrey, is a powerful, cinematic and multi-layered series that tells the contemporary story of the Bordelon siblings, who struggle to move forward with their lives as they strive to honor the legacy of their father following his unexpected passing.


In its third season, the drama continues to delve deep into universal issues of family, life post-incarceration, relationships, sexuality, racial barriers while also celebrating the everyday magnificence of African American life. On this special evening, hear directly from the writers and get a peek into what's next.

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.
