We are happy to announce that the Harvardwood Features Program is now accepting applications.
The program will run from October 2014 to March 2015 and meet on alternate Thursday evenings in Los Angeles.
Each member will work on one of their own feature scripts and set their own goal (turning a treatment into a draft, turning a draft into a polished script, etc). Each meeting, several writers' work will be chosen, read in advance, and workshopped in the group.
The life of a writer can be frustrating and solitary, and thoughtful feedback hard to find; our goal is to build a supportive and engaged community to help us move our work ahead.
This is an intensive program for aspiring career writers. Participants should be prepared to read up to two full length scripts per meeting and should be committed to working on their own material for a minimum of 10 - 15 hours a week.Read more

Harvardwood is excited to announce the 2014 Fall TV Modules!
The modules will use peer review, guest speakers and workshops to foster a motivating and supportive environment for participating television writers.
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 tentatively the week of September 22, 2014. 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.Read more
