The Missouri Stories Scriptwriting Fellowship / Deadline November 22


The Missouri Stories Scriptwriting Fellowship is an international competition for screenplays and television pilot scripts with story lines set in Missouri.

  • Three writers’ scripts will be chosen.
  • The winning writers will receive an all expenses paid trip to our concentrated fellowship experience, held in Missouri in February 2018. The writers will be joined by accomplished industry mentors who will work with each fellow. In addition to workshop time and one-on-one mentor time, they will organize a day trip to visit the area of the state where the scripts are set, for added inspiration.

Previous industry mentors include:

  • Bob Gale (Back to the Future)
  • Angelo Pizzo (Hoosiers, Rudy)
  • Kathleen McGhee-Anderson (Lincoln Heights)
  • Philip LaZebnik (The Prince of Egypt)

Submissions for our next session will open Oct. 1 – Nov. 22, 2017.
