Anthony, Marsha, Richard

On June 7, 2022, we held a very special edition of Writers Talking TV all about THE ART OF SHOWRUNNING. Featuring Anthony Q. Farrell and Marsha Greene, and hosted by Richard Young, they talked first gigs, what it takes to run a writers' room, navigating tough conversations, lessons learned throughout their careers, protecting mental health, and so much more!

The event was recorded and is now available to watch on the WGC's YouTube Channel.
