Honoring Black History Month, we’re offering our third African American Perspectives Fellowship since the start of the pandemic. Three full $2500 scholarships will be awarded for the 12-Week Basic Training that starts Monday, March 7th. Candidates must be self-identified as Black or African American and the application must be completed and received by Monday, February 28th, 2022 at noon, LA time.
Writers Boot Camp has a remarkable diversity track record and more than 30 years experience in support of the individual voices of writers and artists. Even as our educational process occurs within a group of writers, evaluation methods emphasize learning-by-analogy and are designed to empower one’s own creative authority. Basic Training is more than basic; experienced writers will intuitively understand the benefit of the tools while new writers will gain a comprehensive foundation for their future. While a jam-packed and accelerated process to take your Movie or TV Pilot from idea through a first draft and two rewrites, the only prerequisite is 10 hours per week for creative exercises and writing time. You may also create the foundation of your book or novel in the same 12-week process.
You don’t have to know anyone at the company, in the entertainment business or an alumnus of Writers Boot Camp to apply or to be eligible to win, though historically writers with more professional experience will stand out by the distinctions articulated within the application and in reply to the creative and topical questions. The short window of the application period is due to the trend of most writers submitting within the last 48 hours anyway. We encourage you to submit your application early. Feel free to refer friends and fellow diverse writers to this page
Please complete the following application and submit by Monday, February 28th at noon (PST). Only one application will be considered per person.
Please keep every answer to a single-sentence only and review this prior to pressing SUBMIT. The four topical answers will be one sentence each combined in the field as one paragraph of four sentences. We look forward to reading your application and wish the best to all applicants!
