Picket Lines Become Screenwriting 101

Leave it up to striking writers to find not only creative, but productive ways to spend time picketing. John August writes that he was contacted by striker Priya Hamilton-Wilkes with the following message:

A few of us came up with an idea of “Teaching Thursdays,” where writers of various TV and feature genres would join us on Thursdays, making themselves available to discuss story, structure and everything in between to aspiring writers. Medical drama day will be Thursday, January 24th, from 9-12 at Gate 2 at Warner Bros.

They’re kicking things off with medical drama day? Let’s hope the strike lasts long enough for there to be a an action adventure day, or zombie holocaust day… just, please, no family dramedy days!
