My name is Steven White, and I've had almost every job you could get in a Writers' Office. I started as an Intern, moved up to Writers' PA, then Writers' Assistant, Showrunner's Assistant, and finally, Script Coordinator. In my time as an Assistant I worked with amazing writers and producers -- Kenya Barris, Dan Fogelman, Yvette Lee Bowser, Jonathan Groff, Peter Saji, Gail Lerner, and Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger among many, many more. Each job presented a new series of challenges, while also opening doors for new opportunities and new faces.
On my path to becoming a Staff Writer (and eventually Co-Ep on black-ish), I learned that the 'support staff' jobs offered a specific education that helped make me a better writer. I started the Writers' Assistant Lab as a way to teach those lessons to the next generation of Writers' Assistants, PAs, Script Coordinators, and any and all between, so that my experiences could help lead to their success.
