June-July Fellowship
Deadline Extended: Six Total Awards

Save 50% on Your Application
Thanks to Larkin-Goldstein Productions
All-Genre Fellowship Deadline: Friday, July20, 2012

Due in part to support this week by friends of Writers Boot Camp, television producers Michael Larkin and Michael Goldstein of Larkin-Goldstein Productions, we have extended the June deadline and combined it with July for a total of six awards, two in each of the three categories.

All candidates will receive 50% off regular application fees by entering the PROMO CODE LGP50 upon submission of your application.

Note: June candidates who paid full fees will be granted a free additional application. If you have any questions about your application, please email Director of Development Max Timm at

The end of August will be the 36th month in a row that we will have awarded educational Fellowships in the form of $5000 awards toward Writers Boot Camp's Professional Membership, totaling more than $500,000.

Fellowship Notes

Please watch for implementation of Fellowship changes in September and other announcements and materials as we anticipate our fourth year. Now that the creative projects and materials of previous Fellows has been "fully developed" and has been protected by its execution beyond conceptual statements and premise lines, we will be able to post more samples of winning applications, project ideas, essays and the insight of many of the more accomplished Fellows.
To reiterate the Fellowship's emphasis, candidates submit script ideas by the deadline for feature film, television pilot and "diversity" or "inspired" bonus categories. Each Fellow selected will win one-year of Writers Boot Camp's Online Professional Membership based on our Full Development coursework, including three script deadlines within a year.

If you do apply in the diversity category--and applying to more categories certainly increases your chances--please remember that evaluation is based on the subject matter of your story and/or the background of your principal character(s), not on your own personal heritage.

Don't Forget the Promo Code

Again, the sponsorship of the Fellowship by Larkin-Goldstein Productions means that your application fees will be reduced by 50% when you enter the promo code LGP50 upon checkout.

Over the past few months, we've been able to encourage participation and provide savings to candidates through our partnerships with organizations who share our sensibilities and mission in the entertainment industry. Our mutual goals center not only on discovery of new talent but on professional education. Feel free to pass along this information to other writers and filmmakers who would benefit.

Again, enter the promo code LGP50 upon checkout to save 50%, including all of the additional categories you select. We are pleased to provide the 50% discount on the application fee. Additional FAQs are available on the Fellowship page at

In terms of additional tangible value, win or lose, the application includes a 15-minute phone conference to review your project and the evaluation notes. Many candidates significantly increase their chances to win by just one additional category of consideration.
