Pepperdine Hosts Screenwriting Panel for Comedy Writing

I am so proud of the continued success of the MFA program in Screen and Television Writing that I helped to create at Pepperdine University. Our students are outstanding, and our faculty have solid credentials that make the MFA program one of the best in the country. It just gets better.

The MFA is hosting  a program on comedy writing, and the panel looks quite impressive. If you are a writer living in the LA area, I hope you can make it.
