CAPE NEW WRITERS FELLOWSHIP
The CAPE New Writers Fellowship discovers and nurtures emerging writers launching their careers in television and film. One of few programs created by a creative and an executive, this immersive Fellowship arms each writer with the practical and business knowledge they need to succeed as a professional writer in the entertainment industry.
Over several weeks, CAPE brings in top television and film writers, producers, agents, managers, and executives for a series of intimate panels, workshops, and discussions. The Fellowship also features a Writing Lab where each Fellow is matched with a high-level industry mentor to help them revise their original script into professional level writing samples to get them noticed and land that all-important first staff job.
The Fellowship typically runs each year in early spring. Each Fellowship session and Writing Lab meeting takes place on weekday evenings for approximately 3 hours in the Los Angeles, CA area. Fellows must provide their own housing and transportation throughout the duration of the Fellowship.
Applications for the 2020 CAPE New Writers Fellowship will open in November or December 2019.
Alumni of the CAPE New Writers Fellowship have been staffed on every major broadcast network and streaming platform.
Thank you to our 2019 Partners!
