Bill and Camille Cosby Sponsor USC Screenwriting Program

-A +A

The program will select fifteen intermediate to advanced level television and feature writers. These writers will participate in a 15-week intensive workshop where they will develop writing projects that will help propel their careers forward, while promoting positive images of African Americans.

This 15 week program meets two evenings a week, beginning February 2005 in Los Angeles. Participation is free for those selected. There is no compensation or stipend for participation in the program. Selected applicants must commit to the entire 15 week program.

The selection committee looks for original, compelling stories that reflect the vision of the writer. The stories do not have to contain African-American characters. We are particularly interested in African-American writers; however, this is not a requirement for acceptance into the program.

Applications may be obtained at our Website: <HTTP:>, or by sending a SASE envelope to: Guy Hanks & Marvin Miller Screenwriting Program, USC School of Cinema-Television, Room GT132, University Park, Los Angeles, CA 90089-2211. Although based at USC, this program is not affiliated with USC.
