Writers Lab: Congratulations to the 12 women screenwriters over 40 selected for The Writers Lab 2019!

TV Writers: Positive news from the WGA West – women and minorities showed slight gains in the 2019-2020 TV series staffing season compared to a year ago, despite disruptions in the hiring process caused during the 105-day standoff between the guild and Hollywood’s talent agencies.
