WRITERS ON WRITING

SUN OCT 20 | 5:00 - 6:00 PM | Gallier Hall 

It’s no secret that great films and series begin with a blank page or a white screen. Two seasoned pros sit down for a candid chat about the twists and turns of the writing life. 

The moderator of the panel is our very own Landa Yoosuf.

 Felicia Pride is a writer on Queen Sugar and recently sold a drama pilot to Universal Cable Productions. A forthcoming feature film based on her script, Really Love, is in post-production from MACRO. 

Rochée Jeffrey has written on several television series, including Showtime’s SMILF. On the film side, she sold a feature pitch to Lionsgate with Issa Rae serving as an executive producer.
