WIA to Host ‘Women Write Royal’ Panel October 24

Women In Animation hosts “Women Write Royal,’ a panel with all four woman writers on the Disney Junior series, Sofia the First, on Thursday, October 24, at the Animation Guild in Burbank.

'Sofia the First'Women In Animation, the professional organization for women working in the animation industry, is hosting “Women Write Royal’ on Thursday, October 24, at the Animation Guild in Burbank, California.

One of WIA's most active Special Interest Groups is the Writer's Round Table. Energetically led by Bret Wilson, writers of all ages and experience levels present their work for helpful feedback. Many professional writers have also shared their experience and knowledge with the group.

Over the years, it has been often observed that on most writing staffs, men usually outnumber women. There is one show that presents a significant exception: the wildly successful Disney Junior show Sofia the First. All four women on the Sofia staff will talk about their experiences at the Women in Animation October 24th General Meeting, "Women Write Royal."

How do you come up with stories set in the alternate universe of a country ruled by kings and queens? How does magic work? What are Disney's rules regarding who wins at the end? How has studio management helped us imagine life in a monarchical state?

If you are interested in any of these questions -- or have a few of your own -- don't miss this opportunity to meet and work with other members of our active writer's community, and above all, have a great time.
