The CAPE New Writers Fellowship discovers and nurtures emerging writers launching their careers in television and film. This unique 6-week, 12-session Fellowship arms each participant with the practical and business knowledge they need to succeed as a professional writer in the entertainment industry. Each session is taught by top television and film writers, producers, agents, managers, and executives through a series of intimate panels and discussions. The Fellowship also offers a Writing Lab which matches each Fellow with a high-level industry mentor to help them revise their scripts into professional-level writing samples to get them noticed and land that all-important first job.
The Fellowship runs from early March to mid-April with each Session and Writing Lab meeting weekday evenings for approximately 2 hours in the Los Angeles area.
Submissions for the 2017 CAPE New Writers Fellowship open December 1, 2016 through January 9, 2017 at 11:59 PST.
