Thanks to Eric for sharing more about Screenwriting Expo 2008:

(Details upcoming)6:00 PM: Heroes creator Tim Kring and writers Jeph Loeb and Jesse Alexander are here to talk about their acclaimed NBC series.

EVERYBODY LOVES ELLEN
Everybody Loves Raymond writer and producer Ellen Sandler explains how your screenplay could have a second life as a TV script in Turning Your Screenplay into a TV Pilot. This workshop breaks down the elements of a television series proposal and outlines the differences between a feature script and a series pilot.

EXCLUSIVE Q&A's with SPECIAL GUESTS
Dexter writer/producer Melissa Rosenberg, twentysomething/Once and Again creator Marshall Herskovitz, and Army Wives creator Katherine Fugate will participate in exclusive sessions where all of your small screen questions will be fielded by women who are veterans of the medium.

So, even if many of the seminars are geared toward selling you things, it might be worth it to hear from all of these fabulous people!

Ellen Sandler is the author of The TV Writer's Workbook. I browsed it the other day at [Big Name] books, and it seems very colorful and well written. Have you ever checked it out?

I've read Ellen Sandler's book and it was excellent. She goes into details that others don't so you're sure to learn many things!
