Moderated by Daisy Whitney of New Media Minute and featuring the creators of The Writer’s Room, join us as we deconstruct the hits and show you how to effectively compete in the short form arena.

It’s a miracle the show ever gets written, as the eccentric bunch seem to spend more time talking about their own personal crises than they do working on the writing of sketches, comedic bits and monologues for the show.
