Screenwriters, deadline to apply for the LA Features Program is Oct. 7th!

Now through October 7, 2015, we're accepting applications to the Harvardwood Writers Program for feature screenwriters in Los Angeles!

In 2015-2016, the aim of the newly reworked HWP-Features Program will be to ensure that each participant completes his or her screenplay. The group will likely meet once every other week from mid-October 2015 through mid-March 2016. 

This year, the HWP-Features group in Los Angeles is trying a new, stream-lined iteration, in which the application process will be slightly more intensive, in an effort to guarantee the participants' commitment to completing the program and their scripts.  In addition, the group will attempt to operate on more of an organized curriculum, using certain deliverables as waypoints in the development process.  For example, each writer will "pitch" his or her story to the group, will finalize a thorough outline from beginning to end, and will turn in pages in predetermined blocks (by act, sequence, or scene, etc).  Like previous years, the group will strive for a "writers room" format, and will aim to give focused attention to the projects of 2-3 members every week, thereby staggering group submissions and allowing for better productivity and pacing.
