The Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment (CAPE) created the CAPE New Writers Fellowship to discover and nurture emerging writers, launching careers in television and film. This unique 6-week, 12-session Fellowship arms each participant with the practical and business knowledge they need to succeed as a professional writer in the entertainment industry.
Each session is taught by top television and film writers, producers, agents, managers, and executives through a series of intimate panels and discussions. The Fellowship also offers a Writing Lab, which matches each Fellow with a high-level industry mentor to help them revise their scripts into professional-level writing samples to get them noticed and land that all-important first job.
CAPE has aligned the Fellowship to end shortly before NBC Universal’s Writers on the Verge Program begins its application season, providing its Fellows with a head start and expert preparation, which puts them in the best possible position to apply for the NBC and other network writing programs.
The Fellowship runs from early March to mid-April with each Session and Writing Lab meeting weekday evenings for approximately 2 hours in the Los Angeles, CA area.
