[So as not to bury the lede… FREE TICKET INFORMATION BELOW!!!]
Hey, SoCal writers, the good folks at the Writers Guild Foundation have a terrific event coming up on Tuesday, August 11:
Meredith Stiehm is the screenwriter to thank for some of the most compelling and complex female lead characters in dramatic TV. As the creator of THE BRIDGE and COLD CASE, she deftly humanizes the chilling course of a homicide investigation through her strong, steadfast yet seriously damaged lead detectives. Stiehm’s knack for wielding compassion into tough-as-nails characters comes in handy when writing HOMELAND’s Carrie Mathison, who will continue to receive Stiehm’s magic touch for the Showtime series’ upcoming fifth season.
In this exciting Master Class, moderator Pam Veasey (CSI: CYBER, CSI: NY, IN LIVING COLOR) is on hand to guide Stiehm through her impressive career, which also includes writing and producing roles on ER, NYPD BLUE and BEVERLY HILLS 90210, and her distinctive writing style.
PLUS we’ll also have an EXCLUSIVE Green Room Experience, beginning at 6:30pm, where green room ticket holders can meet and chat with Meredith and Pam for an hour before the event. Green Room Experience ticket holders will also get a front row seat at the event. Only six of these Green Room Experience tickets are available.
Doors open at 7pm. Event starts at 7:30pm.
All events advertised on our “Events” page are open to anyone who wants to buy a ticket – not just WGA members!
Proceeds benefit the Foundation’s library and archive and other outreach programs.
You can purchase tickets here. But in an exclusive arrangement with Go Into The Story, I have 10 free tickets to give away to some lucky writers.
How to win? Easy. Head to comments and simply name your favorite series for which Meredith has written episodes: Northern Exposure, Beverly Hills, 90210, NYPD Blue, The District, ER, Cold Case, Memphis Beat, The Bridge, or Homeland.
Tickets go to the first 10 people to post a comment including their favorite one of the TV series listed above!
