It's closed for this year, though, right?

Amanda said...

for 2013, yes. This is for 2014; the submission period will open in the late spring/summer.

No need to register or RSVP?

Amanda said...

I don't believe so, Kimberly. I saw an invitation that went to 500+ people.

Amanda, I have enjoyed your blog since discovered 3-4 yrs. ago. Thank you for enlightening and advising those who do not live in H'wood.

Are you attending the ABC/Disney informational event?

I hope so, and if you do, please report back!

I think in 2010/2011, the fellowship requirements seemed more geared at younger writers w/ requiring professor recommendations/referrals???

Given I'm a mature writer, (LOL) I haven't applied or checked these past 2 open periods since.

Again, thank you for all your input...carla

Hi Carla - Thanks for reading! No, I do not plan to attend the event, but you can find more info here:

I don't think the submission requirements are posted for this year yet, but last year 2 recommendations were required. They're not specifically professor recs; the program has never been geared toward younger writers. The program just wants to see that you've been making an effort to meet people in the industry.
