Black Writers in Focus
January 25 — March 10
From Diverso, in partnership with Rideback and The Writers Guild Foundation, the Black Writers in Focus paid internship program for Black student screenwriters.
Vetted by a committee of all Black readers, four students will be selected to participate in a ten week summer program consisting of writing samples with a personalized mentor, attending panels and classes with industry leaders, and learning by shadowing in a writers’ room.
Selected students will receive a $6,000 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 6th – August 19th).
