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.
We are now accepting submissions to the 2018 Harvardwood Writers Competition!
Industry professionals, with support from the Harvardwood Board of Directors, will evaluate all scripts entered to determine the winner and two runners up from each category. Results will be announced in late 2019.Read more
We know writers' favorite thing to do—after writing, of course—is procrastinating! But the deadline to submit your script to the 2017 Harvardwood Writers Competition is just two weeks away. At 11:59pm PT on July 31, 2017, we'll close the submission portal to the annual HWC.
So get those rewrites done, make sure to PROOFREAD your final draft, and double-check that your cover page is correctly formatted.Read more
Let's all congratulate this year's winners of the Harvardwood Writers Competition and the HWP-TV participants named to the annual Most Staffable TV Writers List (see Deadline coverage).
We received numerous excellent scripts this year, and the winning writers (listed below) were selected by a panel of television executives, writers, producers, agents, and managers. Each writer will receive a one-on-one mentorship, and Competition winners will also receive a cash prize.
