Fall is here. Students are going back to school and meeting new classmates, so are writers of the WGA who met with showrunners on Sept. 20 at the Fairfax High School, L.A. for the Writer’s Guild of America Writers Salon.

During three 45-minute sessions the 250 attending writers got to hear tidbits of writing advice from Mara Brock Akil (Being Mary Jane), Marti Noxon (Un-Real), Eileen Heisler (The Middle), Alexandra Cunningham (Prime Suspect), K.J. Steinberg (Gossip Girl), Moira Walley-Beckett (Breaking Bad’s Ozymandias), Liz Heldens (Camp), Marlene King (Pretty Little Liars) and Liz Tigelaar (Life Unexpected).

Meanwhile on the film front, other guild members were quite busy: Melissa Rosenberg (Twilight) fought for net neutrality on behalf of the Guild at the Sacremento forum and Katherine Fugate (Valentine’s Day), who is currently developing her first feature film as a director, has been re-elected at the board of the WGA.
