Harvardwood Suggests... WGF PRESENTS - So You Want To Be A Staff Writer: Comedy Edition

August 05, 2020 at 4:00pm - 5pm

We at the WGF may have hit a pause on our live events, but thanks to technology, we’re aiming to provide more access to advice and knowledge from film and TV writers while we’re all social distancing. Over the last few months, we’ve been hosting free Zoom panels about craft and all things relevant to writers.

For this session, we learn about the role of the Staff Writer in a TV comedy writers room. Our panel of writers will share how they got the job, their experiences working in their respective rooms, and how they approach building a career writing for TV.


  • Aadip Desai - Staff Writer, The Goldbergs

  • Yael Green - Staff Writer, Space Force, Upload, Dickinson

  • Sarah Naftalis - Staff Writer, What We Do In The Shadows

Moderated by WGF librarian Lauren O’Connor.

Panel starts at 4pm Pacific time.

Space is limited so RSVP now. After signing up, you’ll receive information on how to access the Zoom panel.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected]

For anyone who was unable to RSVP for the panel, we will record and post it at a later date.
