Chat Topic Schedule

We merged #TVWriterchat back into #Scriptchat, dedicating the
first Sunday of every month to "TV Talk."
 


There are only two rules for the chat: 
     1. Bring your tequila and leave your ego behind.
     2. It's not a competition, it's a community.

  Sundays 5:00PM to 6:00PM PT - chat instructions here.
A full list of our past #scriptchat guests can be found here.
