The Toronto Screenwriting Conference was a perfect triple threat: informative, social, fun.  I don't know if I enjoyed myself more as a speaker or as an audience member listening to other speakers.

Leonard Dick

Writer/Producer, The Good Wife

The Toronto Screenwriting Conference is a wonderful opportunity for writers of all shapes and sizes to interact with top drawer TV and film writers from every genre. Toronto deserves a first-rate conference like this – I'm thrilled that it now exists.

Chuck Tatham

Executive Producer, How I Met Your Mother

Working professionals sharing and exchanging the brass tacks of selling and producing content is an invaluable resource for any writer. The Toronto Screenwriting Conference refreshingly reveals not what a writing career is "like," but what it "is".

Rob Zotnowski
