Halloween Writers Group Virtual Brunch
Keynote Speaker: Valerie C. Woods, Co-Executive Producer/Writer: Queen Sugar, Touched By An Angel, Soul Food
Bring something delicious to drink and join us for Halloween Brunch as we connect with other WiM members in a virtual setting. Women in Media members who are already in groups, those who need to find a new group, and those who haven’t been placed yet are all encouraged to join us. Members may seek and offer inspiration, critique, and support on scripts, outlines, and treatments from other members in the Group. We will be making introductions, networking, and adding folks to existing groups or forming new ones. We will send the Zoom link before the event, so please RSVP ASAP.
Writers Group is a great way to meet your fellow WiM members and make connections and get your writing done! Lots of members are hiring each other based on the relationships forged in the groups. If you are new to Women In Media, this is an excellent way to meet fellow members and make new friends.
