“The only place I've ever been that just supports you and lets you create art. It's art for art's sake.”
Mentors are an essential component of the Screenwriters Colony experience. Our network of industry professionals includes accomplished writers, directors, producers, and creative executives, all of whom bring a generous spirit and invaluable guidance to our writers. Mentors join the Colony to advise on scripts, run Writers' Room experiences, share career advice, and enjoy socializing and camaraderie with the writers-in-residence.
