New Writing Grants


Four six-week residencies which include a stipend and supply
budget are to be offered between September 2012 and April
2013. The deadline for submissions is May 18, 2012. Ebb &
Flow is a 6-week residency based on the premise that Southern
Louisiana can be seen as a microcosm of the global environment,
manifesting both the challenges and possibilities inherent in
human interaction with urban and natural ecosystems. We ask
artists to describe in detail how the region will affect their
work, to propose a public component to their residency and to
suggest ways in which they will engage with the local
community. Residents given $3,000 stipend and $2,000 for
materials, plus full room and board including food, utilities
and studio space. $30 application fee.



Operating in a three-phased structure, the Program provides
a salaried position for up to one year and offers hands-on
experience writing spec scripts and pitching story ideas in
both live action and animation television. This three-phased
structure allows writers an opportunity to nurture
relationships with creators, network executives, line
producers, head writers, show runners and story editors.
Although professional writing experience is not necessary
(i.e. having worked as a writer), a strong writing background
is encouraged. Deadline February 28, 2012.
