Announcing the 5th Annual ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship Finalists

By June 8, 2018Blog, Featured, Fellowship

ScreenCraft is excited to announce the Top 25 finalists for the 5th Annual ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship. These 25 finalists were selected from a submission pool of over 2,100 entries. From this list, we will select up to four emerging TV or film screenwriters to receive the ScreenCraft Fellowship, which includes lodging at the historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, round-trip travel to Los Angeles for a week of meetings, mentorship and personal introductions to major studio executives, literary agents, managers and top film and TV producers.

Nearly all ScreenCraft Fellowship winners have gone on to receive offers for representation from top literary managers, and many past recipients have sold their projects to studios and been hired for open screenwriting assignments. We are excited to see these talented writers take the next step in their emerging careers.

Stay tuned for the June 22nd recipient announcement here and on our Twitter and Facebook pages.

The 6th Annual ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship will open for applications in September.
