Winning a TV Writing Fellowship to Jumpstart Your Career: Get the inside scoop on landing one of the big six coveted TV fellowship programs that help writers break into the TV writing business. One of the best ways to launch a T.V. writing career is to participate in a T.V. writing program from one of the major television networks. These programs typically give you a period of intense instruction and pair you with working writers and producers. The goal is to launch your writing career, and give the network a new, qualified, writer. This workshop is taught by a WGA writer who won three TV writing fellowships (Fox Diversity, ABC Daytime TV Fellowship and Writer’s Bootcamp Diversity Fellowship). In this workshop you’ll learn about the fellowship process from application to participation. You’ll also learn which program is right for you and how the many fellowships differ. In the ever changing TV writing landscape, TV fellowships still remain a great way to launch your TV writing career.
