Writers Room Panel
Thursday, June 10th – 6:30pm
Ever wonder what it is like to be in a writer’s room? Curious how things have changed in the past year?
NwSG members have the exclusive opportunity to attend an intimate panel discussion with writers from Grey’s Anatomy, The Unicorn and more!
We will talk about their path into the business and what might work for you. The different jobs in a room. Feature rooms versus television. Small rooms and large ones, comedy and drama. We have so much to cover but you must be a NwSG member to attend!

Howard Jordan Jr.
A native of Richmond VA, Howard’s first career was spent largely spent in New York City as a copywriter, strategist, and creative director for some of the most famous advertising agencies, tech giants and brands in the world. But, he left it all behind to chase his true love, television writing. Specifically, sitcoms. After relocating to LA with no job or apartment, he eventually built a network and wrote the samples that helped him make his way into the CBS Writers Mentoring Program. Which as he puts it, “changed everything.” He’s been staffed on CBS’ Superior Donuts, Netflix’s Family Reunion, BET+’s Bigger, and again at CBS on The Unicorn. He’s a WGA award winner and currently in development on two series of his own.
