Terry’s Picks: Screen Tales, Joss Whedon, Michele Spitz

Screen Tales: This month, thanks to our friends at Lifetime Broad Focus and WIF LA, The Writers Lab presented 10-minute readings from the scripts from the inaugural 2015 Lab to audiences of industry movers & shakers in both New York and LA. We’re so proud of all those involved and are looking forward to working with the next group of writers in September!

Joss Whedon: Frequently vocal feminist Joss Whedon cut to the chase in an interview last week, criticizing the film industry for what he calls its “genuine, recalcitrant, intractable sexism, and old-fashioned quiet misogyny.” Amen.

Michele Spitz: The Examiner has a great profile of NYWIFT member Michele Spitz, Woman of Her Word, who devotes her time to making the arts accessible to all. Michele is providing audio description services for all future projects that receive the Loreen Arbus Disability Awareness Grant.
