ScreenCraft Announces New Fellowship

The First Annual 2013 ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship, presented by Celtx, is designed to advance the careers of talented screenwriters through ongoing consultation and introductions to key entertainment industry executives and talent representatives. This is not merely a contest; it is a chance to enter an intensive program meant to foster relationships with industry professionals.

This is Celtx's first foray into collaborating on a screenwriting service. Final Draft has had their Big Break Screenwriting Contest for over 13 years.

The 2013 ScreenCraft Screenwriting Fellowship recipients for both TV and Film will be congratulated from the stage at the WGA Awards ceremony on February 1st, 2014 at the Edison Ballroom in New York City.

ScreenCraft is an official sponsor of the 2013 WGA Awards.

With this first-annual fellowship, ScreenCraft aims to cultivate a growing community of visionary screenwriters with meaningful connections to industry veterans and mentors. ScreenCraft Fellows will receive 6 months of development and consultation with the ScreenCraft consulting team, followed by a:

  • $1,000 stipend and round-trip travel to Los Angeles to be mentored one-on-one by industry professionals including:

  • Consultation with Jen Grisanti, acclaimed Story Consultant, International Speaker, Writing Instructor for NBC’s Writers on the Verge, Blogger for The Huffington Post and author of many books. Jen’s clients have sold dozens of pilots and they have signed with top agencies. She has helped over 40 writers get staffed on shows.

  • Coffee with screenwriter/producer Don Handfield — Handfield is producing partners with two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner at The Combine. The company most recently produced Kill the Messenger (starring Jeremy Renner and Michael Sheen) for Focus Features/Universal. Don wrote and directed Touchback (starring Kurt Russell) for Anchor Bay and has written or sold projects to Paramount, DreamWorks, Warner Brothers, Lionsgate and others.

  • Lunch meeting with Michael Colleary, UCLA screenwriting professor and writer of such blockbusters as Face/Off and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

  • Meeting with a literary agent from one of the big five agencies (WME, CAA, UTA, ICM, Paradigm)


Applications will be evaluated based on story, voice, originality, characterization, structure, dialogue, and overall craft. The judging panel, selected by ScreenCraft, will include producer Don Handfield and consultant Jen Grisanti, as well as creative executives from select studios and production companies.

All screenwriters are eligible as long as they have earned less than $20,000 from professional writing services for film or TV.

Entries accepted until the deadline on January 15th.
