Meg LeFauve and Lorien McKenna host the hit podcast "The Screenwriting Life," covering topics ranging from the art and craft of writing itself to a writer's life. The podcast addresses "the ups and downs of the creative path, and how to use the artistic journey to generate your best work."

The pair will choose several people from the audience to explain their stories in five minutes or less and then workshop the stories live for ideas and new inspiration. The discussion from the Live Story Workshop will be featured in an upcoming episode of "The Screenwriting Life."

McKenna is the showrunner for "TAB TIME," a half-hour YouTube series produced by Kids at Play. In addition, she has an adult animated comedy in development with Viacom/Mindshow, and she's sold projects to Hulu and NBC. She is a former Pixar story manager, having worked on films including "Up," "Brave," "Inside Out," and "The Good Dinosaur."

LeFauve's experience in producing and screenwriting spans more than two decades. She produced "The Baby Dance," which was nominated for an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and won a Peabody Award. Later, she wrote Oscar-nominated Disney Pixar films "Inside Out" and "The Good Dinosaur" and penned the story for Marvel Studios "Captain Marvel."
