HBO Access 2017 Writing Fellowship


The HBOAccess Writing Fellowship is designed to give emerging, diverse writers the opportunity to develop a half-hour or hour script suitable for HBO or Cinemax.

The program will select up to 8 diverse writers to take part in a series of master classes held over one week in July at the HBO campus in Santa Monica. Classes will consist of discussions with HBO executives and showrunners and will focus on the craft of writing including structure, story, and character as well as the business aspects of securing an agent and effective networking.

Winners will be paired with an HBO or Cinemax development executive who will serve as his/her mentor over the course of 10 months.

Material created during the program will be considered for production in the HBOAccess 2018 Directing Fellowship.
