One Room at a Time: A Conversation with Latina TV Writers

About This Event

On this special evening, we partner with Stephens College MFA in Screenwriting and Television to sit down with a panel of Latina TV writers and producers. We'll gain insight into how they found and developed their voices as writers, how they broke into the industry, and each of their approaches to working your way up in a writers room.

  • Maria Escobedo (Nina's World, Elena of Avalor, East Los High)
  • Dailyn Rodriguez (Queen of the South, The Night Shift, The Glades)
Moderated by WGF Board Member and Stephens College Advisor Ligiah Villalobos (The Real MVP: The Wanda Durant Story, Go, Diego! Go!)

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.
