The Jewish Writers’ Initiative incubates Jewish-themed scripts for mainstream film, television, and digital media platforms.
Selected writers develop scripts with industry support and access to individualized resources that enhance the creativity and authenticity of their stories. Writers attend immersive seminars and receive a monetary stipend for their participation in the program.
After pausing the program for COVID, the Initiative has just launched a new Digital Storytellers Lab running in 2022-2023. The Screenwriters Lab is not currently accepting applications. Sign up for our mailing list to stay up to date on both programs.
