WGAW 2018 Feature Writers Access Project Now Open

by TVWriter™ Press Service

If you qualify for this project, this is a hell of an opportunity. Definitely worth checking out for writers with the required relationship to the Writers Guild of America West.

Sounds awkward, yeah, but keep reading and you’ll understand:

Dear WGAW Member:

We are now accepting submissions for the 2018 Feature Writer Access Project. The project seeks to identify outstanding minority writers, writers with disabilities, women writers, writers age 60 and older and LGBTQ+ writers and make their scripts available to entertainment industry decision-makers, including producers, studio executives, agents and managers, in order to help raise their profile and generate potential employment opportunities. This program is modeled on the success of the TV Writer Access Project for mid-level television writers.

PLEASE NOTE: At the time of submission, a Project participant must be an Associate, Current Active (including Lifetime Current), Post-Current Active or Associate Caucus member in Active status of the WGAW. If submission is made by a writing team, both writers must be an Associate, Current Active (including Lifetime Current), Post-Current Active and Associate Caucus member in Active status of the WGAW.

The deadline for submissions is Friday, August 3, 2018 – 6:00 p.m. (PST)

The Feature Writer Access Project guidelines, application and release form can be accessed at: https://www.wga.org/fwap

Please e-mail or call the Diversity Department if you have any questions about the application process at: diversity@wga.org or 323-782-4589.

Sincerely,

Tery Lopez
Director, Inclusion and Equity Department
