If you’re a writer over the age of 21 consider this exciting, new opportunity from HBO. Starting March 4th, the network will be accepting applications for the HBOAccess Writing Fellowship.

“We are looking for emerging writers with a deep passion for storytelling and a unique voice who will want to bring that talent to HBO and Cinemax,” said Kelly Edwards, vice president of HBO’s talent department. “In turn, they will be nurtured by some of the best creative executives and showrunners in the business. HBO has a long legacy of supporting writers and we are excited we can begin those relationships at this early stage.”
