Objective

Undiscovered Writers of All Levels Wanted !

If you've got potential and a passion for screenwriting, we want to find you. The ISA FAST TRACK Fellowship offers TWO undiscovered screenwriters the opportunity to meet with and be mentored by EIGHT executives in Los Angeles. Plus, our chosen writers will work directly with the ISA Development Team for an entire year in an effort to Fast Track their careers.

"That was such an amazing treasured experience [with] both the mentors and you lovely folks. You do realise that you guys helped change my life... Honestly made a profoundly positive impact."
- Andy Byrne - (2016 Fast Track III Fellow)

"I never will forget that my life started changing when you picked me for the Fast Track Fellowship. So much has fallen into place and I am forever grateful."
- Lily Mercer - (2016 Fast Track III Fellow)

"The fellowship was a great chance to meet a ton of people I would never have had access to."
- Chris DeWan (2015 Fast Track Fellow)

Accepting writers from ALL levels!
