This Saturday, August 9th, stating at 3PM, the 8th

annual Leimert Park Village Book Fair in Los Angeles will host a “Writing for

the Industry” panel, which will aid “beginning, advanced and aspiring screenwriters

through the steps of writing their first feature length script, getting representation, being staffed on a TV

show, pitching to studio executives and more."

The panel, which will be moderated by writer/filmmaker

Erica Watson ("Roubado," here), will include Gina Prince-Bythewood ("Love &

Basketball," "The Secret Life of Bees," "Beyond the Lights"), Rob Edwards ("The

Princess and the Frog") Lena Waithe ("Bones," "Dear White People"), Abdul Williams

("Lottery Ticket"), Aaron Rahsaan Thomas (Co-executive producer "Southland" and "Sleepy Hollow") and Tyger Williams ("Menace II Society").
