Black Writers in focus internship programme

DIVERSO has partnered with RIDEBACK (Aladdin, It, The LEGO Movies) and THE WRITERS GUILD FOUNDATION, to create Black Writers in Focus: a paid internship program for Black student screenwriters.
Vetted by a rigorous committee of all Black readers, four talented students will spend ten weeks over the summer fine-tuning a writing sample with a personalized mentor, attending panels and classes with industry leaders, and learning from the best by shadowing in a writers’ room. Students will be paid to develop their craft.
Selected students will receive a $5,000 stipend to support a part-time commitment over 10 weeks. Interns are expected to make a 20-hour commitment each week. The internship program will be hosted virtually over the summer (June 7th – August 16th).
Our program is made possible by our sponsors: WARNERMEDIA, Oprah Winfrey’s OWN, MADISON WELLS MEDIA, Lin Manuel-Miranda’s MIRANDA FAMILY FUND, Issa Rae’s HOORAE PRODUCTIONS, and more.
