Made in NY Writers Room identifies emerging local writers of diverse backgrounds and viewpoints to provide them with early-career development training from seasoned writer-producers. The Fellowship also provides access that the writers would not otherwise receive from hiring professionals in the television industry. The Made in NY Writers Room is accepting applications for its second cohort. Women, people of color, and individuals from other groups under represented in the television landscape are encouraged to apply.
