Whether you’re an emerging screenwriter, have already completed a couple of screenplays, or if you just want to know where to start writing your first one, and you live in the Los Angeles area, you’re in real luck.

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").

The panel will take place in the Community Room at the Baldwin Hills/Crenshaw Plaza, located at 3650 Martin Luther King Blvd in L.A.
