    Harvardwood Heads To... Isaac Pope: The Spirit of an American Century -- Cleveland premiere! (second showing)

    Wednesday, September 18, 2019 at 01:30 PM · $12.00 USD

    Tickets for seniors and for students with I.D. are $6.00.

    This film has won several film festival awards, had a special screening for the NAACP's National Board, was screened at Harvard Kennedy School's Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, and was just nominated for a special award from the Congressional Black Caucus's Veterans Braintrust. Audiences are rating it an _average_ of 5 out of 5 and calling it "powerful," "rich on so many levels," and "inspiring." It's about 100 years of racism told through the spellbinding storyteller Isaac Pope's life. Isaac Pope was a 100-year-old grandson of enslaved people, son of sharecroppers, an unsung hero of the civil rights movement, of World War II's Battle of the Bulge, of labor organizing, of his church, and of his wider community. His wisdom, warm humor, penetrating political insights, love, and compassion permeate the film, which also shows interracial/interethnic friendships that serve as much-needed models for today.

  • The Jeff Sagansky Harvardwood TV Writers Program | Now accepting applications

    Apply now to the Fall 2019 semester of the Jeff Sagansky Harvardwood TV Writers Program in Los Angeles! The deadline to submit your application is September 15, 2019.

    The Jeff Sagansky Harvardwood TV Writers Program uses peer review, guest speakers and workshops to foster a motivating and supportive environment for each participant’s writing. There is a high expectation of preparation and writing done outside of the meetings (approx. 15-20 hours per week). Each module will have approximately eight participants, and will meet for approximately eleven sessions over a fourteen-week period beginning in late September 2019 or early October 2019. The program has a strict attendance policy, so please make sure that you can fully commit before applying. Participants are required to give constructive feedback to fellow writers in each session, so there is an expectation that you will have read applicable work prior to the meeting. The modules are successful because of this peer review, and you should expect a "writers room" format for your group.

    Winners of the Harvardwood Writers Competition & Most Staffable TV Writers

    Harvardwood has announced its Writers Competition winners and Most Staffable TV Writers List. This year, every category is led by a writer from an under-represented group. Although the winners are chosen via a blind judging process, Harvardwood's writers programs and competition have always had a far more diverse population than any WGA statistics on TV writers’ rooms or feature projects.  “Harvardwood has strived to support new voices in the industry, and we are proud to see those efforts reflected in our competition winners,” says President Allison Kiessling.
