Writers on Writing with Diablo Cody

Writers on Writing with Diablo Cody

About This Event

On this special evening, we welcome Diablo Cody, the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of films including Juno, Young Adult, Jennifer’s Body, Ricki and the Flash, and, most recently, Tully. She will share how she approaches her screenplays and creative projects as well as the writing that inspires her.  

Along with her work in film, Diablo Cody also created the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning series United States of Tara alongside Steven Spielberg, and the WGA-nominated series One Mississippi with Tig Notaro. Recently, she wrote the book for Alanis Morrissette’s musical, “Jagged Little Pill” which premiered at American Repertory Theatre in May. Through her company, Vita Vera Films, she continues to develop shows for both cable and broadcast television with Warner Brothers Studios.

Moderated by Aline Brosh McKenna (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Devil Wears Prada).

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.
