It really nice that these important persons in the industry would make themselves available to inform and assist writers and new writers as well as job-seekers in other areas.

It would be nice to hear you take on the first meeting: what you learned, who you spoke to, if you pitched a script idea, if you got an appointment with a panelist, if you made some helpful connections.

Being out of town, I've never had the chance to go.

Sorry for the typos! My brain never met a word it didn't want to misspell.

Thanks so much for writing about the Nerdist Writer's Panels, I never would have heard of them otherwise. I went to the most recent panel on the 6th and it was great! Wonderful writers giving honest, tell it like it is stories of how they broke into the industry and what it's like in the room today. Thanks so much for spreading the word!
