Anam wrote in to share the following info about the 2010 Nickelodeon Writer's Symposium:
The Nickelodeon Writer’s Symposium, in partnership with the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles, is a 2-hour, invitational designed to prepare applicants for submission to the Nickelodeon Writing Fellowship.

If you’re interested in writing for television and would like to attend the Nick Writer’s Symposium, RSVP to Anam Syed (firstname.lastname@example.org) by July 26.
