The Fox Writers Intensive (“FWI”) is a highly selective writer’s initiative, held at the Fox Studios in Los Angeles, CA, January 2015 through May 2015. The Intensive is designed to introduce experienced writers with unique voices, backgrounds, life and professional experiences that reflect the diverse perspectives of the audiences Fox creates for to a wide range of Fox showrunners, writers, directors, screenwriters and creative executives. These collective individuals will work with the selected writers in a series of master classes to build on both their general craft and further their skillsets in the business of writing for television, feature films and digital content. Please note that while employment cannot be guaranteed, every aspect of the initiative is designed with a goal — to provide the accepted finalists with intensive creative and professional development, exposure and opportunity that would best equip him or her to succeed at Fox.
FWI is for trained writers and/or previously staffed, produced or published writers who have a strong command of their craft and who are deeply committed to pursuing that craft as a profession. The goal of FWI is distinctive in equal parts to create an optimal resource for both experienced writers with diverse perspectives that will be reflective of our broad and diverse audiences and the cross divisional Fox creative executives who endeavor to continue to develop and distribute quality entertainment.
NALIP is now accepting submissions for FWI nominations. Our internal deadline is October 5, 2014. Please submit a one sheet that includes: name, writing credits and/or links to work samples to [email protected].
