General Hospital clearly has the “write” stuff, because the ABC soap has once again taken top honors at the Writers Guild Awards.
Recently retired head writer Jean Passanante took to Twitter during Sunday night's event with the exciting news, writing: “What a nice way to round out my time at #GH. THANK YOU #WGAEast and congrats to all the very talented writers, especially head writers @MichelleAltman1 and @OGChrisVanEtten.”

GH beat out fellow nominee Days of our Lives this year, and it is the third year in a row the soap has won in the Daytime Drama category.
GH's award-winning writing team consists of Passanante along with head writer Shelly Altman and writers Anna Theresa Cascio, Suzanne Flynn, Charlotte Gibson, Lucky Gold, Kate Hall, Elizabeth Korte, Daniel James O'Connor, Dave Rupel, Katherine Schock, Scott Sickles, Christopher Van Etten, and Christopher Whitesell.
Executive producer Frank Valentini took to social media to congratulate the team.
