The Universal Pictures Emerging Writers Fellowship Program aims to identify and cultivate new and unique voices with a passion for storytelling. Emerging writers who are chosen to participate in the program will work exclusively with the studio over the course of a year to hone their skills. During this program, fellows will be given the opportunity to work on current Universal projects as well as pitch original story ideas. Fellows will also attend workshops, receive mentoring, interact with top literary agents and sit in on Universal’s executive meetings. Fellows admitted into the program will be hired under a writing service agreement and must be committed to working full-time for one year.
The application posted Tuesday, September 3rd at 12 noon. The submission window will only be open for 30 days or until they receive 500 eligible applications (whichever comes first). Click here for application requirements.
