TV Writers Studio Info Session: Long Island University's MFA in Writing & Producing for Television

Wednesday, Nov. 14th 7:00-8:00pm in Fayerweather 113

Join William Rabkin, assistant director of the MFA program in writing and producing for television at the TV Writer’s Studio, as he shares insights about the field.

Professor William Rabkin of Long Island University’s TV Writers Studio, which grants an MFA in Writing and Producing for Television, is a thirty-year veteran writer, producer, and showrunner in television. He has worked on such shows as Monk, Psych, and Diagnosis Murder.

Professor Rabkin works closely with Emmy Award-winning veteran screenwriter, director, producer, and showrunner Norman Steinberg to make LIU Brooklyn’s TV Writers StudioSM an environment where students experience what it is like to be a writer and producer of a TV series.

The underlying philosophy of the TV Writers Studio is that, given a well-designed curriculum, the right team of mentors, appropriate technical resources and sufficient time, a group of talented graduate student writers, working collaboratively, can develop a TV series that is broadcast worthy. It is through this process that the students will develop the full range of skills, knowledge and experience necessary to enter the profession of television writing and production.
