HBOAccess Writing Fellowship is back and looking for aspiring writers.

Do you have a TV show or a movie idea? The HBOAccess Writing Fellowship is a program directed towards helping diverse and aspiring writers through a mentorship program. 8 people will be selected to take part in a one-week set of intensive master classes, followed by 8 months of mentorship by HBO executives.

Each writer who is selected for the opportunity develops a script for HBO or Cinemax and the classes will prepare writers to write the best script possible. Writers will learn how to improve their story structure, character development, and information on how to maneuver through the entertainment industry. Participants will also meet for monthly peer workshops.

Scripts created during the program will be considered for production in the following year’s HBOAccess Directing fellowship. Previous writers who have completed the program have later written for hit shows such as “Timeless,” “Gotham,” and “Bunk’d”.

Masterclasses will take place in June, followed by 8 months of mentorship and it is free to apply. The deadline to apply is February 2020. To apply you will need to submit a script, resume or bio, 2 short essay questions. Script submissions can also include a 30-minute comedy or dramedy pilot, original 1-hour drama pilot, full-length play, 3 scripts for the same web series, or a feature film screenplay, and a signed legal release form.
