We know stories are powerful.

 

Throughout history, stories have inspired us, opened new perspectives, and deepened our understanding of the human condition. Today, writers for the screen are the most influential storytellers in the world. The best writers in film and television present us with stories and characters that push the boundaries of a comfortable culture.

We believe these writers need time away from the rigors of the modern world and the demands of commerce to develop their craft and have the most profound impact on audiences. We also believe storytellers thrive with the support of a strong community of fellow artists and mentors who understand the journey of the writer’s life.
