Founded in swinging, mondo-groovy 1966, The Writers Guild Foundation is the only organization in the world devoted solely to the promotion and preservation of writing for the screen. Our events and interviews capture screenwriters and television writers at their most intimate, and run the gamut from Oscar-winning dramatists to TV scribes writing to devoted fanbases.

In Depth Interviews with A- List Screenwriters
I can't tell you how valuable these episodes/recordings are. As an aspiring screenwriter living outside LA, these recordings are like magic! Each interview and panel is jam packed with insights and inspiration and glimpses into the industry.
Each episode is an audio recording of a live event with A list screenwriters working in Features and Television. The programming is very current and unlike other shows on craft, the business, etc, there is a live element that adds a very warm dimension to these interviews. If you are a screenwriter, I highly recommend this podcast!
Great substance, bad audio
I love these podcasts and they have amazing insights into writing and the business, but guys, please get the sound fixed with those mics! Painful to listen to sometimes.
