4th Annual Native American Writers Seminar – Fellows Selected

May 19 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

 The 4th Annual Native American Writers Seminar, in partnership with the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians, has announced five selected fellows for this year’s program.

   “It’s an incredible experience to see emerging indigenous talent develop through the seminar.” Announced Ian Skorodin, director of strategy for the Native American Media Alliance. “Each seminar fellow learns the essential tools and opportunities to break in and maintain a career in this industry.”

      The Native American Writers Seminar is a two month intensive that supports emerging writers who are new to the film and television industry. This initiative provides access for Native Americans to advance their career and develop their writing sample. All participants chosen for the seminar will workshop an existing script with accomplished and seasoned writers from motion picture projects and television series. The program provides intensive development workshops and is accompanied by rigorous writing sessions.

     In addition, the seminar provides representatives from prestigious fellowships and past participants of Native American Media Alliance writing programs. These speakers share insight into career development, professional growth and new writing opportunities.
