Virtual WriterDuet Meetup
Apr 22 | 11:00 am – 1:30 pm PDT
Women In Media members are invited for a virtual inter-departmental networking event and seminar designed to enhance your collaborative workflow. The focus is on the script, and all who need to collaborate during development as well as keep up with changes from pre production through post. Writers, producers, directors, art department personnel, production designers, script supervisors, etc. are welcome to attend. There will be networking, breakout groups, and a seminar on WriterDuet and ReadThrough.
We will be connecting existing Writers Groups who need new members to those who would like to join a Writers Group.
Our Gift to You
The WriterDuet team is thrilled to provide Women in Media writers groups with complimentary WriterDuet Pro licenses (valued at $107.88/year). Folks who work in non-writing departments will be especially interested in ReadThrough. With these licenses, your team can access essential tools for collaborative script development for the next 12 months. You must be present at the event to redeem this offer. Supplies are limited and first come, first served.
About The Seminar
WriterDuet team members Spencer Mirabal and Emily Poliakoff will join us for a comprehensive demonstration on how to optimize your use of WriterDuet and ReadThrough. The seminar is divided into two parts. One part will focus on writing and collaboration. The second will explore how members of the production team can use WriterDuet and ReadThrough to stay updated on rewrites and streamline their own workflows.

About Writers Groups
WiM members meet up in a virtual setting where they may seek and offer inspiration, critique, and support on scripts, outlines, and treatments. Groups meet regularly and have the benefit of WiM’s professional Zoom if they request it. We have also found that multi-hyphenates in the groups hire each other. WiM offers suggestions about how to run groups, but the groups are autonomous.
Participation in the Writers Groups is open only to WiM members. You must have a Women In Media profile. We recommend updating it, as it will be shared with other members of the group. You’ll want to put your best foot forward.
Note: As a condition of participation, members acknowledge that their involvement with a WiM Writers Group is completely voluntary, and Women in Media is not responsible for the management or operation of the Writers Groups. In accordance with copyright law, participants retain ownership of their work and assume all risk for any damage that may result from their involvement with a Group.
Please be advised that all virtual events hosted by Women in Media may be recorded and distributed for promotional purposes. Your voluntary participation in such events authorizes and acknowledges Women in Media’s exclusive rights of ownership and use of all recordings.
