Breaking into the Writers' Room

Saturday, June 5 — 11:00 a.m. Pacific time/2:00 p.m. Eastern time
How do you get hired as support staff in a writers’ room? These jobs – writers’ assistant, script coordinator, showrunner’s assistant, and writers’ PA – are seldom advertised. In this panel discussion moderated by Sam Clarke '10 (writer, Nickelodeon's Rugrats reboot), Emerson alumni discuss how they landed these positions, what the jobs entail, the skills needed to approach the jobs and get noticed, and how these roles have been impacted by COVID-19.
